Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Autodesk Certified Professional, part of Cert Prep: Revit Architecture Certified Professional (2016).
- [Narrator] So we're staying in the Autodesk Revit Architecture exam preparation road map that we looked at in the previous video. Let's have a look now at what the certified professional examination consists of. So we'll just scroll down in the pdf, the pdf we downloaded previously. Let's have a look now at the recommended experience levels. So there's the certified professional exam, it says Revit Architecture course or equivalent so that would be our lynda.com Revit Architecture Essential training plus 400 hours of hands on application.
Now that does sound like a lot, it's not if you think about it. If you're doing 40 hours a week on Revit at work that's going to be 10 weeks, that's going to be just under three months worth of experience or hands on application, and as I mentioned in the certified user video previously you just keep a log of all the hours that you spend on Revit a bit like a pilot monitoring their hours in the air. Those 400 hours soon mount up especially if you're using Revit Architecture at a professional level already before you take your certified professional exam.
So what does a certified professional exam give us in this case? So if I scroll down you can see that certified professional is the pale blue, the middle section of the pyramid and a certified professional exam is aimed at assessing a professional users knowledge of the tools, features, and common tasks of Revit Architecture. So what it's doing now, this exam is much longer it's a two hour exam, you're actually using Revit itself and taking the answers you get from Revit into the exam answers in a portal.
So you'll be using a full version of Revit, but you can't get access to the help screens and you go in and you answer the questions based on information actually out of the Revit application. So what happens there is you're actually using the application, you're using the workflows and processes within Revit Architecture. So it's that next level up the pyramid. So this time you're not just doing a benchmark, but you're assessing your actual users knowledge of the tools and the features that you would use to perform those common tasks in Revit Architecture.
So for more information on all of this obviously you can look more on the Autodesk website or the other thing you can obviously do is contact your local Autodesk certification center.
Once you're finished with this course, you can feel confident taking the Revit Architecture 2015 Certified Professional exam.
