Hear from some of our Autodesk Certified Professionals:
Certification allows you to prove your ability. Some people see [having the certification] as an option, but for some companies, it’s a necessity. I see a big difference between employees/students who are certified and who are not. Those who are certified know how to get things done faster and better.
