Prove to potential employers that you’re up to the task by becoming an Autodesk Certified Professional. This online course from Autodesk prepares you by offering an overview of skills that match what is covered in the Autodesk Certified Professional: Revit for Architectural Design exam. The video lessons are structured to match the exam’s objective domains and follow the typical workflow and features of the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software, including sections on modeling and materials, families, documentation, views, and Revit project management. In the course, you'll review advanced modeling architectural topics and work with walls, floors, roofs, ceilings, stairs, columns, and rooms. You'll also gain an understanding of exam topics such as family categories and types, phases and design options, schedules, and worksharing. Brush up on selection sets, detail components, color schemes, levels and grids, and much more.

About the Autodesk Certified Professional: Revit for Architectural Design exam:  
The Autodesk Certified Professional: Revit for Architectural Design exam is the recognized standard for measuring your architectural design skills and knowledge in Revit. The certification enables you to showcase your abilities and also signals to potential employers that your skills have been validated. This type of experience typically comes from having worked with the software on a regular basis for at least 2 years, equivalent to approximately 400 hours (minimum) - 1200 hours (recommended), of real-world Autodesk software experience.

The Autodesk Certified Professional (ACP) certifications exams can be taken at a Pearson VUE Testing Center or through OnVUE, Pearson VUE’s online proctored environment. Candidates are given 120 minutes to complete a certification exam and should review the testing center polices and requirements before scheduling.

I took this exam a couple of weeks ago having been a regular Revit user for the past 5 years and I failed. The resources provided in this page do not prepare you at all for the nature of the exam. A few questions in I realized the test was a joke. I asked the instructors when can we open Revit and the answer was that the exam changed and we will not get to open it! If that is the case, then why are the practice exercises Revit files? You should just hand out a list of questions.

Not being allowed to open Revit at all and having to complete 50 multiple choice questions just by memory is not the way to test someone's skills on a software. Trying to remember what the exact name of a tool is, or which series of commands you should do to complete a task and the right order? Especially when Revit is not as shortcut driven as other Autodesk software and we are forced to use the mouse more than the keyboard.

I am extremely disappointed with the certification program and I regret the money and time I spent into it. I am confident that the result of this test does not reflect my skills level at all.
