Autodesk Certification

Design and make a better world. Start with certification.

Whether you are an educator helping students prepare for college or career, or a student looking for a competitive advantage, or perhaps a company looking for people with the qualifications to make things happen, an Autodesk certification can make a difference. Strong design software skills are a great asset in both the academic and professional arenas. Teaching students to use state-of-the-art Autodesk® design software such as AutoCAD, Inventor, Revit, Maya, 3DS Max, and Fusion 360, along with providing Autodesk certification gives them a significant advantage in achieving college or career success.

Close the skills gap. Validate your students’ expertise/knowledge.

Autodesk® certifications are industry-recognized credentials that can help designers, engineers, and makers succeed at any stage of their career. As more and more industries experience a skills gap as they hire new talent, Autodesk certifications provide a reliable validation of skills and knowledge. An official certification from Autodesk can start with the Autodesk Certified User certification to enhance academic success and prepare for college or a career. Then accelerate professional development, improve productivity and increase credibility with the Autodesk Certified Professional.
