SALT LAKE CITY - December 2, 2013

Certiport (, a Pearson VUE business, the leading test delivery solution provider for the global workforce and academic markets, announces the availability of the Autodesk® Maya® and Autodesk 3ds Max® Certified User exams as part of the Autodesk Certified User (ACU) certification program.

Autodesk Maya 3D animation software offers a comprehensive creative feature set for 3D computer animation, modeling, simulation, rendering, and compositing on a highly extensible production platform. Autodesk 3ds Max software provides a comprehensive 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and compositing solution for games, film, and motion graphics artists.

"The launch of two new certification exams for Autodesk Maya and Autodesk 3ds Max further our goal to offer individuals the opportunity to be certified on as many Autodesk products as possible," said Bob Whelan, president and chief executive officer for Pearson VUE. "Since the launch of the ACU program three years ago, we have seen it help students prepare for design careers by giving them another building block on their resumes to prove they have in-demand design skills and a strong knowledge of Autodesk software."

Autodesk Certification can enhance the competitive edge and reputation of organizations that adopt its use, while providing an industry-accepted credential that students and professionals can use to achieve academic success and advance their careers.

The ACU exams combine multiple-choice and performance-based questions to ensure students understand and can effectively use Autodesk software. The Autodesk Education Community offers students and educators free software, learning materials and classroom support, giving them experience with the same design software that professionals use every day. Institutions already offering ACU exams can easily add the Autodesk Maya and 3ds Max exams to their offerings.
