Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Cert Prep: AutoCAD Certified Professional (2015).
- So what should you know before taking this AutoCAD Professional certification prep course? Well the first thing you should know is that there are two levels of AutoDesk certification for AutoCAD. There are two levels and the first level is the Certified User exam. Now we're not going to prepare you for that exam. However the exercises, the exercise files, and the tools and tricks that you will learn in this course would stand you in good state to take the Certified User exam.
All information is useful, especially when you're taking an exam. The course itself is designed for you to learn and prepare for your AutoCAD Certified Professional examination. Now by default, based on the AutoDesk literature that is provided, you should have at least 400 hours of use of AutoCAD 2016 under your belt before you take the Certified Professional examination.
So be aware of that before you take this course. Don't just think that you can take this course and then pass the exam. You may do so. You may be an absolute superstar. You may walk it and walk away with an AutoCAD Certified Professional qualification. But the AutoDesk recommendation is 400 hours of use on AutoCAD 2016. So make sure that you've got a good degree of experience with AutoCAD 2016 before you even consider taking your Certified Professional examinations.
What you also need to know when you're working with this particular course is that all of the drawings in the exercise files are saved down to the 2013 DWG file format. So you will need to use a version of AutoCAD that is at least 2013 DWG compliant. So let's get going now. Let's get into the course. Let's get you prepped up for your AutoCAD Certified Professional exams.
