Design professionals get a second shot at Autodesk certification

Autodesk EMEA education and training distributor, KnowledgePoint, has announced a new “Second Shot” offer for design professionals. Under the terms of the latest offer, anybody who takes and fails an Autodesk Associate or Professional Certification exam will receive a totally free re-sit.

In addition, anyone who took part in Autodesk’s first ever Open Doors Certification Day, October 19 2011, and failed their exam is also eligible for a free re-sit.

The latest Second Shot campaign offer is available from 1 December 2011 to 31 January 2012. It is already proving a great success, with over 50% more Autodesk Authorised Training Centres (ATCs) taking part in this campaign compared to the previous Second Shot initiative in the Summer.

“This latest initiative is an important element of Autodesk’s strategy to support design professionals, across all sectors. We want to provide every opportunity to help demonstrate professional standards and skills through Certification,” says Graeme Phillips
Autodesk Program Manager EMEA,KnowledgePoint. “We recognise that it is part of our responsibility to the industry and we look forward to successfully progressing this activity.”
