Inventor training course allows the candidates to practice 3D design, validation, and documentation processes using a computer aided software, Inventor, from Autodesk. On developing the basic skills, the course focuses on enhanced productivity in creating assemblies and designing part models. The participants also learn the techniques to streamline the design and documentation process. Sheet metal design concepts along with stress analysis simulation are also introduced in Inventor training classes.


All the knowledge and skill imparted prepares the candidate to appear for the Autodesk Inventor Associate Certification and the Autodesk Inventor Professional Certification. The associate level certification is prerequisite for the professional level certification.

Inventor training curriculum is composed of the following six sections:

  • Autodesk Inventor Essential
  • Autodesk Inventor Advanced
  • Autodesk Inventor – Sheet Metal
  • Autodesk Inventor- Simulation
  • Autodesk Inventor Associate Preparation
  • Autodesk Inventor Professional Preparation

Upon completion of the course, students will be proficient in the following:

  • Navigating user interface
  • Creating 2D sketches, 3D parts, views, and assembly designs
