Certiport and Autodesk are committed to improving our exams to match the most current industry standard and demand. As such, we have modified the existing Autodesk Certified User (ACU) exam in Fusion 360 to a now selective response exam, which is the same type of innovative selected response format questions Certiport uses in other programs. The Information Technology Specialist, Microsoft Certified Fundamentals, Unity Certified User, and Apple App Development with Swift certification exams all use the same type of questions that you now see in the new ACU Fusion 360 exam. The new exam format will ensure a smooth test taking experience for the candidates, while validating their Autodesk Fusion 360 skills.
Here’s a snapshot of the new ACU exam in Fusion 360:
- 50 minutes
- 35-40 questions
- Innovative selected response questions
- The current objective domains remain the same
The current live-in-the-app exam has officially been retired as of June 30th, 2022.
