Autodesk Education has selected Certiport - represented by Certitrain - as the vendor for certification for schools. Thousands of academic institutions around the world are currently set up to administer Certiport certification exams. With the launch of the Autodesk certification program, educators and students can take the exams at one of these centers or become a center themselves.
If schools or districts want to run examsonsite, they can easily become a testing center and run the exams seamlessly in class. Institutions can sign up to be centers on the Certiport site: www.certiTrain.com. On the website, institutions designate an administrator who will manage getting the exams and a proctor who will be presentto moderate when candidates are takingthe exam. Once online sign-up is complete,the institution will receive a welcome information packet from CertiTrain.
During 2009, Autodesk Education made the decision to partner with Wiley Publishing to produce the Autodesk Office Training Guides that help professionals prepare for certification. These guides are now called the "Mastering" series and are available in bookstores and online bookstores or directly from your AVAR. While there is no longer a one to one match on objectives to the guides, these comprehensive Mastering Guides do cover all of the objectives tested by the new exams. Schools can purchase these guides from their AVARs.
You can take the exam at any Autodesk Authorized Certification Center. To purchase a certification exam at the student price, go to http://autodesk.starttest.com and select "Purchase as Student". You can then purchase and schedule your testing at a certification center directly.
