The Only Autodesk® Authorized Training Center in Rhode Island

As the world’s largest provider of design visualization software, Autodesk is uncompromising in its standards for upholding product integrity, applied in real-world situations. That’s why, in 1985, Autodesk designated New England Tech as an Authorized Training Center – the only one in Rhode Island and the only place to be fully and adequately trained.trial

The current curriculum, certified instructors, and up-to-date equipment must all be in place to maintain Autodesk’s prestigious authorization.
