It lets you design, visualize and communicate your ideas with ease and efficiency. Led by Shaun Bryant, this course provides viewers with the basic essentials needed to take and pass the AutoCAD 2009 Certified Associate exam. To begin learning today, simply click on the links.

So how do we get started with Autodesk Certification? Well the first thing you need to is go to the Autodesk website. Now this is the front page of the certification page of the Autodesk website and it's very easy to find. Go to www.autodesk.com backslash certification. It's spelled here on the screen, certification. Now as you can see there's lots to look at here, the most that you need to look at first of all is your certification program flyer here. So it's a PDF so you can easily download that no problem at all. Let's have a look though; you've got Comprehensive Exam Guides as well. Let's have a look at those and see what we can find. Now what you'll find is the Autodesk Official Training Course Ware here. AOTC courseware is allowed to be used for the Associate Exams. Now we're doing the AutoCAD 2009 Associates Exam so what you'll need is a copy of the Autodesk Official Training Courseware, the AOTC material for the essentials course for AutoCAD 2009. Now the best way to do this is to go and do the Essentials Course first. So you go and do your three day AutoCAD Essentials Course for AutoCAD 2009. You then utilize your AOTC material to gem up on the exam you then go and take your AutoCAD 2009 Associates Exam. Now a lot of this information is already available in the Certification program Flyer and what I've done is I've included that with these course notes for you, so you have the PDF available you don't even have to download it. It's with this particular course from VTC. So let's go back to the overview here and let's have a look. So whatever your career path proven or to desk software expertise will keep you ahead of the curve and help you develop a solid competitive advantage. So the first thing you need to do is sign up. So how do you get certified? You have to take an exam at an Autodesk Certification center, an ACC and basically what you can do there is you can take that exam through your Autodesk Certification Center or you can assess your readiness here. Autodesk testing on line. So you can actually take these exams online as well but they have to be done through authorized training centers that are registered as Autodesk Certification Centers. You can purchase your exam online, it can be scheduled online at your Autodesk Training Center. So that's what you need to do first, that's how you get started. So what certification options do you have? Well let's have a look at those as well. The options that you have are these 5 products, AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD Civil 3D, Autodesk Inventor and River Architecture. We are looking at AutoCAD, so let's have a look at AutoCAD and as you can see there the Autodesk AutoCAD Certification, the Certified Associate notice there is also Certified Professional, we are looking at Certified Associate with this course so all the information that you need there, again you have an exam going, you have an application proficiency exam for AutoCAD 2008 and notice there was also previously an AutoCAD 2008 Certified User Examination Overview available as well. So there's all this information and material that you can download. Now for a list of available certifications and find an exam site near you there's the link, it's all on the website, so its very easy to get started. You have articles on How To as well so let's have a look at these How To articles. There's all these articles that you can look up on the Autodesk website that may help you with your exam. So there's certification again and all of this information is available to you on the Autodesk website. Now the Autodesk website you need to go to is www.autodesk.com backslash certification. So get there first, find out about your exam.
