The University packs 275-plus classes and labs into four days of learning Autodesk tool tips and demonstrations, as well as networking with your peers.

Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
