How do I book a place on a course?2016-10-24T10:36:57+01:00

We have tried to make it as simple as possible to book a place on one of our courses. Once you have selected the course you wish to attend add the number of recipients you would like to purchase for the course. For example, if it is just you attending just select one person, however, if more than one of you are attending and need to book more than one place on the course, select the desired number of “bookings” you require. Once you are happy with the number click on “Add To Cart”. This will bring you automatically to the checkout page so you can review your order. If you are happy with your order click on “Proceed To Checkout” then proceed to fill in your details and click on “Place Order” under Review & Payment.

Once you have placed an order you will receive an email with your invoice from WorldPay. Please keep this handy for future reference. If you have not received this email please check your spam box or call us.

If you would rather speak to us on the phone to book a course please call us on 01403 784 139.

Please note we use WorldPay for transactions which is a secure payment method.

How can I claim my Autodesk Certificate after the course?2018-09-27T16:42:36+01:00
As we are an Autodesk Authorised Training Center, all delegates who attend a relevant Autodesk training course are entitled to claim a certificate of completion. Delegates must claim these certificates directly from Autodesk within 30 days of the course start date.

To ensure that you can complete the evaluation at the end of your training and claim your certificate, you will need to create an Autodesk Student Account by following these instructions:

Create a student account:
– Go to:  http://education.autodesk.com/register  and register as an Autodesk student.

– If you already have an Autodesk (software or other) account and this blocks you from registering as a student, you can access the system via: https://education.autodesk.com/login-student by putting in your current account details and asking for a password reset.

– Fill out the form making sure to say ‘YES’ to “receiving survey requests from Autodesk”. This is an essential step and you will not be able to access the evaluation form or claim your certificate without it.

– Once you submit the form and set-up is complete you will receive an email asking you to validate your account.

 – Validate your account and remember to bring the details of your student login to the training.


At the end of your course your trainer will guide you through the process of claiming your certificate.

We can also provide Benchmarq Certificates of Attendance for all of our courses.
