Autodesk is now including veterans in its software Assistance Program

The Wounded Artist Project

Wounded Artist Project - April 7, 2010 The Wounded Artist Project is pleased to report that Autodesk is now including veterans in its Assistance Program which offers free educational licenses of their software. We had contacted Autodesk for support for a short YouTube video we are doing about Building Information Modeling (BIM) software. They liked what we were doing and offered to open up the program to vets.

This program started out with over 17 different products being offered to unemployed workers who wanted to learn new software in these areas:

  • General Design
  • Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC)
  • Manufacturing
  • Media & Entertainment
  • Geospatial

    Autodesk reports that more than 17,000 unemployed people worldwide have signed up for the program.

    Enrollment in the Autodesk Assistance Program and software download availability runs through January 31st, 2011. The program offers:

    • Free Software Licenses
    • Free Online Training
    • Classroom Training Discounts
    • Certification Discounts
    • Software Discounts for Employers who hire Assistance Program participants

    Go to www.autodesk.com/assistanceforvets to register.

      Suggested answers for the Registration page:
      • Company Name = Branch of Service (Army, Marines, etc.)
      • Company Job Title = MOS Number or Title
      • Former Company Email Address = Current personal or military email
      • Country = USA
      • Company HR Contact = Yourself
      • Company HR Phone Number = Your personal phone number
      • Company Primary Field = Defense
      • Company Industry = General Design Date of Departure = ETS or discharge date

      The Wounded Artist Project was particularly interested in the architecture suite of software which includes Building Information Modeling (BIM) tools such as Autodesk Revit Architecture software. BIM software creates a dynamic model of a building which is used during construction but is also a valuable reference for the owners and operators of the building over the course of the building’s life.

      For those disabled vets who like perspective drawing or are interested in architecture and urban planning this might become a good home-based career as a detailer or designer. A vet could create a service-disabled, veteran-owned business (SDVOB) and work with architectural firms who outsource their BIM, we’ve heard from a couple of sources as far away as India.
