I've been approached by somebody to do some AutoCAD training. What would be considered an appropiate hourly fee? I know that may sound like a stupid question but I dont have anything to base this on, figured you cad experts may have some ideas.

Ive never tutored before.  However based on instructor fees Ive seen in the past, I would probably charge no less than $25/hr.  This would be adhoc one on one training, with no preparation on your part required.  However if these guys are beginners and you have to create a course package and do things very formal, then I think it would be more like $40 - $50/hr.  I would do it for less if it was under the table income.  All of this assumes the client will be providing equipment (workstations, projector etc).  If you become well established with your own business, the rates would of course have to go higher $75-$80/hr I would think.  I would contact an Autodesk trainer in your area and inquire about rates.  Whatever their rates are go at least 25% lower.
