Certiport to Provide Autodesk Certification for Professionals
SALT LAKE CITY– February 1, 2016
Certiport (www.certiport.com), a Pearson VUE business, the leading test delivery solution provider for the global workforce and academic markets, today announces they will deliver the Autodesk Certified Professional (ACP) certification exams. Certiport has delivered the Autodesk Certified User exams since 2011 and will now expand that offering to include the ACP exams for AutoCAD, Autodesk Inventor, Autodesk Revit Architecture, Autodesk 3ds Max, Autodesk Maya, Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D, Autodesk Revit MEP and Autodesk Revit Structure.
"In today’s competitive landscape, Autodesk Certified Professional accreditation helps designers and engineers stand out amongst peers and remain attractive to potential employers," said Randy Swearer, Autodesk vice president of education. "We’re committed to helping professionals stay on top of industry trends and inspiring a lifelong love of design and a never-ending desire to learn."
Autodesk Certified User certification will continue to be offered for those who are relatively new to Autodesk software and want to demonstrate basic proficiency. Those who possess more advanced skills and can solve complex workflow and design challenges can now pursue recognition as Autodesk Certified Professionals; certification at this level demonstrates the skills needed to pursue career advancement.
"Autodesk software skills are in-demand in the workforce today, and we are pleased to offer customers these two options for earning certification," said Bob Whelan, president and CEO of Pearson VUE. "By earning ACP certification individuals can gain industry recognition for their skill set, improve their performance and add value for their employers, and earn a portable credential for job retention and mobility."
