About Certification...

I was looking for the certification choices for Civil 3D and I found this

"Civil 3D 2008 Implementation Certified Expert"

 

Does anyone know if an "Exam preparation Roadmap" exists (or anything describing the subjects to be examined),

and/or if it's still possible to get certified in it?

Sir, now I understand why Greece lies in such a deep crisis: you have 8 GB Ram on a 32 bit Windows (I'm joking, however...)

That technician should be scurged on the Partenone place, my dear...

Your x32 Windows "sees" only a bit more than 3 GB, while Civil 32 bit even less, so you are wasting almost 5 GB Ram, period.

I believe the implementation certification was only available to employees of resellers, and not available to the public.

after contacting autodesk's certification dept,

I was told that it's not supported anymore (only versions 2011 and above)

but I never learned what this was about... (I mean the implimentation thing)

 

anyway - thank you all

The "Implementation Certified Expert" or ICE was for resellers and Autodesk sales/tech only as stated. It was intended for resellers to go in to an firm/office and not only sell the products but also install, train, setup templates, styles and every thing in between for someone that has no to little experience with the product(s).

I got a couple of those ICE certifications hanging on the wall here. IMHO they were not worth the thousands of dollars my employer had to pay out for me to get them. It was a week worth of hotels at Manchester for Civil3D, and San Raf for the Map3D and Mapguide ones, then add in the airfare, a week away from work and the cost to attend the training for each one it got expensive for the boss.
