SPC Engineering Technology Students Receive AutoCAD Certification – Engineering, Manufacturing & Building Arts

spcCongratulations to six SPC engineering technology students who received their AutoCAD User Certification in June.  These students proved their commitment by attending a two hour boot camp prep class on Saturday mornings for about two months.  Their instructor, Mr. Steven Torres, an adjunct in the engineering technology department, spent time reviewing material from AutoCAD I and II and practicing the material to gain more confidence.

Certification helps verify a skill set and lets employers know that a possible new hire has the ability to start work immediately.

What it means to be a Certified AutoDesk User.

Employers look for the most qualified and highly trained candidates. Many candidates say they are the best but few can back up the claim. Being a Certified AutoDesk User allows current and future employers to know for a fact that you are not only dedicated to your profession but that you are that highly trained and qualified candidate they are searching for. It also demonstrates that you are willing to go the extra mile in order to stay up to date and relevant in the CAD world. Being certified is more than a piece of paper it’s a commitment to being the best. It is proof positive that you are not only prepared but you excel in your field.
