Free Autodesk Certification exams have been one of the most popular additions to AU in recent years. This year, we offered Professional Certification exams for 6 products. As of Thursday morning, attendees took 1,966 Professional exams compared to 1,400 last year. Which exams were most popular?
- 36% AutoCAD® 2013
- 37% Autodesk® Revit® 2013
- 14% AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2013
- 10% Autodesk® Inventor® 2013
- 3% Autodesk® 3ds Max® 2013
We also offered beta versions of the new Autodesk Certified User exams for AutoCAD, Inventor, and Revit to 100 attendees. The tests are designed primarily for students to test their skills. Response was positive, and these tests will be made available now for the North American market, and expanded globally in February 2013.
Many attendees took advantage of the online preparation classes offered on the AU website prior to the conference as well as on-site preparation classes at the conference on Tuesday. Others also caught on to the fact that they could take exams on Monday before the conference started, leaving the rest of their week for classes and other AU activities.
If you’re planning to attend AU next year, consider adding Certification to your AU schedule. Autodesk Certifications are industry-recognized credentials that can help you differentiate yourself from the pack and create more opportunities to advance your career.
