The Autodesk Certified User certifications have been really useful to me. I’ve taught some tools to professionals that have a long time working with these programs and didn’t know about the tools! I’ve also learned to be more efficient because of the constant practice with the program. Teachers in my school get amazed because of the beauty of my projects and how realistic they are. I’m completely sure these certifications will bring a lot of prestige to me in the industry in the future.
I totally recommend ACU certification because it’s the first step where you can prove how skilled you’ve gotten with the tool, and it also tells other people how much you can manage the software without the necessity to brag about it. One more advantage would be the possibility of participating in the various competitions Autodesk organizes throughout the year.
