Certificate Graduate

VDCI offers two types of certificates that verify and validate the knowledge and skills you gained during your training: nationally accredited certificates and completion certificates.

Our nationally accredited certificates are reserved for program graduates. Our completion certificates are awarded for all individual courses and Autodesk courses. Completion certificates are a great way to showcase newly learned skills to employers or on networking platforms.

Certificates vs Certification

Earning a certificate at VDCI is proof of successfully completing our training. It is a testament to what you learned in our classes and programs. Our courses align closely with Autodesk’s exam objectives and taking our courses will help prepare you for a certification exam. However, passing our classes or graduating from our programs will not make you certified in a software. If you are interested in certification but don’t know how to get started, please reach out and we would be happy to advise.
