Autodesk certification beta exams

Taking an Autodesk beta exam puts you first in line to have an opportunity to add our newest certifications to your résumé. Beta exam participants are an instrumental part of the certification research and development process and get to take our newest beta certification exams prior to the release of the official exam.

Autodesk Beta exams are $35 USD.

If the beta exam becomes an official Autodesk certification exam, participants who pass the exam will be awarded the certification and a digital badge to add to their résumé.

Autodesk reserves the right to change prices and/or terms at any time.

FAQ for beta exams

Learn more about our certification beta exams. Note that information, requirements, costs, and beta exam dates are subject to change.

Autodesk invests in certification exam development to accurately measure skills to industry validated standards. A "beta exam" allows us to test out a broad range of exam questions to determine quality and validity that inform the creation of an official certification exam.

  • Beta certification exam results are typically available within 6 months of completion of the beta exam but may take longer.
  • Beta exam promotions, price, and policies apply to beta exams only and do not apply to standard/live exams.
  • Autodesk reserves the right to change beta exam prices and/or terms at any time.
  • Candidate must meet all eligibility requirements for Autodesk certification exams and agree to the candidate agreement and all other applicable terms and conditions.
  • Autodesk may alter or discontinue any beta exam at any time.

For beta exams that include a screening process, follow these steps:

  1. Follow the "Apply here" link above to apply to participate in the beta exam.
  2. If you are selected as a candidate to take the beta exam, you will receive an email notification. Note the beta testing period; candidates can only schedule and take the beta exam within this period.
  3. Sign-in to your Autodesk account if you are not already signed in.
  4. Schedule the beta exam by accessing your Autodesk certification dashboard.
  5. Candidates take the beta exam and share feedback.
  6. If Autodesk determines that a beta exam will be published as an official exam, beta exam candidates will receive exam results. (See "Do all beta exams become Autodesk certification exams?" below.)

For beta exams that do not have a screening process, follow these steps:

  1. Follow the "Apply here" link above to apply to participate in the beta exam. You will be prompted to submit an application and schedule your exam.
  2. Once you've scheduled the beta exam, you can refer to the details by accessing your Autodesk certification dashboard.
  3. Candidates take the beta exam and share feedback.
  4. If Autodesk determines that a beta exam will be published as an official exam, beta exam candidates will receive exam results. (See "Do all beta exams become Autodesk certification exams?" below.)

To prepare for an exam, we recommend candidates study the topics listed in the exam objectives.

Once the beta period is over, we evaluate the results from the beta exams delivered. Post-statistical analysis of the exam is used to evaluate the performance of each question as well as participant comments. If a beta exam does not become an official Autodesk certification exam, candidates will not receive a score report or digital badge. Candidates will instead be rewarded for taking the beta certification exam with an Autodesk certification exam voucher* to take a future Autodesk certification exam (Autodesk Certified Associate, Professional, or Expert exams through the Pearson VUE platform). Candidates will be notified if the beta exam does not become an official Autodesk certification exam.

If a beta certification exam becomes an official Autodesk certification exam (see "Do all beta exams become Autodesk certification exams?" above), beta certification exam results are typically available within 6 months of completion of the beta exam but may take longer. Candidates will be notified via email if they have passed or failed.

If a candidate passes the beta certification exam, the candidate will be awarded an Autodesk certification, and a shareable digital badge from Credly.

Participants who do not pass the beta exam cannot retest as part of the beta. Once an official exam is released, candidates can purchase and schedule to take it at any time.

You will not have access to the software during the exam, as all questions are in a selected-response format and are designed to be answered without the software user interface.
