The New Certified BIM Specialist: Road and Highway Solutions 2014

Good morning everyone. I hope everyone is having a great week. It has been a crazy two weeks for me dealing with implementation and customization of our 2 new telephone & internet services at our two offices. On top of that, helping with the setup and installation of several new workstations and coordination with the IT Dept. with the planning and implementation of our new network server this week. In addition, kicking  off two new large projects. Fun!

Anyways, I just found out some very interesting news from Autodesk today. It seems Autodesk has just created its first BIM certification exam: Certified BIM Specialist: Road and Highway Solutions 2014. This certification exam will test the knowledge and skills of designers, engineers and land planners using the BIM workflow across multiple software platforms using the Infrastructure Design Suite to creating and modifying road and highway designs. The exam topics covers over Project planning, Preliminary design, Detail design and  Visual communication. If you would like to learn more about this certification exam see links below.

Personally, I think this is a great step for Autodesk. I was wondering how long it would be before something like this would start. Even though this test mostly uses InfraWorks and Civil 3D, I hope to see another exam that will incorporate Naviswork and 3ds Max Design. So what will that certified specialist be called then? Jedi? lol. Anyways, thanks for stopping by and feel free to make comments.
