Sample Certificate

The Autodesk Certified User exams have been designed specifically to give students hands-on experience and entry level skills to meet industry requirements. The exams combine multiple-choice and performance-based questions to ensure students understand and can effectively use Autodesk software.

Certiport's internet-based testing software makes delivering ACU exams simple and robust, providing an internationally standardised assessment of each candidate's performance.


Autodesk Certified User certification is currently available for AutoCAD, Inventor. Revit, 3ds Max and Maya. The exams are not based on a specific release of the software but instead are based on a series of fundamental tasks that are not release specific.
