Both the Autodesk and IC3 exams are accessed in the same way.  In order to take either exam, you will need to do the following:
1. The school must be registered as a Certiport Test Center.  If either the Microsoft or Adobe exams are given, then the school is already registered.  Verify that the school is approved for the Autodesk  or IC3 exam.
2. Each teacher and student who will be taking the exam must be registered as a user with Certiport.

Both steps 1 and 2 can be accomplished at www.certiport.com/go.

Both the IC3 and Autodesk Certified Professional exams are administered via Console 8.  The Autodesk Certified User exam is available via the online platform or Console 8.  Console 8 will be required beginning January 2018.  With Console 8, Autodesk software is used for simulation questions and must be installed on the computer.

On each computer on which the exam will be given, the Organization Administrator for your Certiport test center must login and perform the following:

  1. Install Console 8.  Download and installation is found under the Training and Tools tab.  Click here for technical requirements.  Click here for installation instructions.
  2. Once installed, download the ACU, ACP, or IC3 exam content.  Log in to Console 8, click on 'Updates', and check the pertinent content.
