certification certification pinoycadcoin (Computer) (OP) 3 Jun 15 01:58 Is it necessary to be certified in Autodesk product just to be competitive? Some company don't mind that because its not necessary or a requirement if you are fit or not for your job's role. RE: certification JNieman (Aerospace) 3 Jun 15 13:52 I came across one guy who was certified and he had very bad habits and did not know how to properly use and modify XREF entities. Autodesk certifications (at least for Autocad) are quite useless. They test whether or not you know what commands to use, how they work, how to modify objects/properties, etc, but they don't teach anything about best practices or "the right way" to do things. Mostly this is because there are 20 different ways to do any one thing in Autocad. One company will use a particular system and another company will do it entirely differently. For some software, a certification may carry respect. AutoCAD certifications would not, imo. I've never talked to another CAD manager or engineer who cared for them, either, so I don't think my opinion would be too terribly rare. I believe it is a combination of the very nature of AutoCAD software and it's versatility, as well as the nature of the exams themselves and what they require for a passing grade (not much). _________________________________________ NX8.0, Solidworks 2014, AutoCAD, Enovia V5 RE: certification pinoycadcoin (Computer) (OP) 1 Jul 15 02:48 thanks Jnieman.
