Autodesk European education and training distributor, KnowledgePoint, has announced that the third Autodesk Open Doors day will be held on 18th October 2013.

Here, participating Autodesk Authorised Training Centres (ATCs) across Europe will open their doors to CAD professionals, demonstrating Autodesk products, providing training and preparation sessions and enabling attendees to take exams to certify their skills.

This follows the success of last year’s event, which was the company’s biggest and most successful single Certification event, delivering just under 7,000 exams.

“Certification is becoming increasingly important to validate skills and to ensure best practice in the use of Autodesk software. Last year’s event demonstrated significant demand and we want to continue to support design professionals in this way,” says Kirstin Donoghue, Autodesk partner manager EU at KnowledgePoint.

“By naming the date now, we hope that as many as possible will make a note in their diaries and keep the day free. We will be releasing more information nearer the time.”
