New Delhi, Sep 10 (UNI) To enable design engineering students and professionals certify their proficiency, Autodesk, one of the world's biggest CAD solutions companies, today launched its Professional Certification program in the country.
''This program will be run at Autodesk Certification Centres, which have been established at our training centres across 135 locations in the country,'' Autodesk EMEA Training Manager Norman Buckberry told reporters here.
The certification will be available at two levels: the Associate and the Professional level.
The Associate level certificate is a multiple-choice examination designed to establish whether an individual has learnt the basic common functionality of the software.
The next stage is the Professional level examination, which further tests the candidate's ability to use the product effectively and efficiently under exam conditions.
It will be a performance-based test requiring the candidate to use the software and manipulate design drawings to find answers to real-world questions, simulating the kind of work a designer would be expected to carry out.
The certifications are currently being offered for Autodesk products in architecture, engineering, construction and manufacturing domains, he said.
Autodek is a leading publsiher of AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite, Civil 3D and Autodesk Inventor Professional (AIP).
The company will expand the program to include higher levels of specialist exams in future looking at the demand and the success of the current program, he said.
