A First for DMPS Students
Des Moines, IA – May 29, 2015 – Recently, students in the Computer Aided Design program and PLTW: Civil Engineering & Architecture were given the opportunity to take the Autodesk Certified User Exam, with the first successful certifications earned by Central Campus CAD student and Hoover High Senior Jamie Malone, CEA students and Lincoln High Senior Eddie Rush, Lincoln High Junior Matthew Walker-Johnson, and Roosevelt High Junior Jakob Sheraden. Jamie earned the Certified User distinction for Autodesk AutoCAD; and Eddie, Matt, and Jakob earned the Certified User distinction for Autodesk Revit Architecture.

Central Campus High School, Des Moines Public Schools, recently announced that it has become a Certiport Authorized Testing Center. Becoming a testing center for Certiport allows Central Campus to increase access to certification exams for a number of industry software packages such as Adobe, Autodesk, and Microsoft to its students. Additional certification programs will be offered in the future. Currently Central Campus has only offered the exam to its current students, but will soon extend the opportunity to area high schools, post-secondary students, and adults.
