The Autodesk Certified Instructor Program helps certified professionals develop skills and advance their career by earning Autodesk Certified Instructor status (ACI). ACI instructors are recognised as experts in providing training in Autodesk Software. Within Symetri (UK) all our Inventor Instructors have this accreditation.
Craig Snell is the first and the only person in Europe to be awarded this honour, currently, there are only 21 Gold Level ACI’s, 17 coming from the United States, 2 in Canada, 1 in New Zealand, and now Craig joins this elite group.
To be awarded gold level status, Candidates must first attain the ACI accreditation and maintain this for 3 years, which gives a Silver Accreditation, this must also be maintained for another 3 years before Gold Level Status can be applied for. To achieve Gold, and candidate must attend over 20 hours of Autodesk product training, and teach a minimum of 40 hours per year, They must have recognised articles in a published journal, and/or The Autodesk Knowledge Network, as well as attending 10 hours of professional development in their core area of expertise.
