Certification-Friendly Courseware

Autodesk certification objectives have been mapped throughout the corresponding training guides making these guides ideal resources for those seeking to earn Autodesk professional-level certification. By including exam objectives within the guides, time and effort spent studying is reduced, as was the case with Eric Witter from the Facilities Organization, at Princeton University. Eric turned to ASCENT’s Autodesk Official Training Guides for help in studying for one of the Autodesk Certification exams while at Autodesk University.
