Autodesk now offers software certification for secondary schools! Students no longer have to take the same exam as industry professionals. AutoCAD and Inventor (Revit Architecture coming SOON) exams are based on a series of tasks and objectives that are common to all releases. This is great news for the IT Department because the lab does not require a particular version be installed. These new exams are industry certification exams and will thus meet the requirements for assessment as set forth in the Perkins Funding Act which will please your Administrators!
The hour long tests contain a mixture of multiple choice type items along with simulation type items that require students to perform a series of tasks on an interface that simulates the Autodesk ribbon interface.
Study packets can be used to prepare students for the online exam. Please contact a Studica Education Sales Consultant for more information and pricing.
Autodesk Education has selected Certiport as the vendor for certifications. Thousands of academic institutions around the world are currently set up to administer Certiport certification exams.
