ASCENT- Center for Technical Knowledge® Releases Eight Autodesk Official Training Guides for Autodesk® 2013 Software

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 3, 2012 — Rand Worldwide®, a global leader in providing technology solutions to organizations with engineering design and information technology requirements, announced that its courseware division, ASCENT- Center for Technical Knowledge, released eight training guides for Autodesk 2013 software:

ASCENT has made several enhancements to its Autodesk Official Training Guides for Autodesk’s 2013 release of software. The first of these enhancements is a greater emphasis on Learning Objectives incorporated into the beginning of each chapter and section. Recognizing the value of the Autodesk® Certified Instructor (ACI) program, these objectives have been enhanced to enable both students and instructors to clearly identify the expected learning outcomes of each module.

Secondly, Autodesk Certification exam objectives are now incorporated within the applicable ASCENT training guides. New icons have been added throughout the guides to identify student guide topics related to certification objectives for those who are looking to take the Autodesk Certified Professional Exam. Additionally, users will find a concise mapping document in the Appendix that highlights the exam objectives and where to locate those topics within ASCENT training guides.

Also new to ASCENT’s 2013 training guides is the inclusion of a web address through which to download an electronic version of the exercise files, replacing a CD in the book. Moving the exercise files from CD to an online version will prevent issues with misplaced or damaged CD’s, eliminating downtime while waiting for a new CD. The link to the exercise files is clearly indicated at the front of each Autodesk Official Training Guide. Lastly, ASCENT has made it easy to determine what’s new in the software by including “New in 2013” and “Enhanced in 2013” call-outs throughout the guides, where applicable.

“Once again, ASCENT is pleased to provide our customers with several 2013 training guides that are available for purchase in conjunction with the software release,” remarked Paul Burden, Director of Product Development, ASCENT. “The ASCENT team has worked hard to meet the needs of its customers by providing training guides not only in a timely manner, but with several new enhancements as well. Our goal is to publish training guides that will provide exceptional instruction for a classroom setting, for self-study use, and also as a reference for continuous use outside the class.”

ASCENT is an Authorized Author, Publisher and Developer of Autodesk curriculum, publishing Instructor Tools, printed training guides and eBooks. ASCENT’s eBooks contain the same content as the printed guide, providing users with a personal electronic copy of the training guide. eBooks can be downloaded to smart phone or tablet devices compatible with iOS 4.0 or higher, and Android 2.2 and higher.

All of ASCENT’s Autodesk 2013 courseware titles will carry the Autodesk Official Training Guide designation, and in addition, ASCENT’s Inventor courseware is Autodesk Inventor certified. All of the company’s training guides are available to educational institutions, individuals, and corporations and can be purchased directly from the online store: www.ASCENTeStore.com.
