Autodesk Academic Partner, Autodesk Certification

You have made a commitment to education, so have we. Synergis is here to help you better prepare your students for the technological challenges of the 21st century. As an Autodesk Authorized Academic Partner has a breadth of educational experience and the ability to support your education institution other software resellers can’t match.  As an Education Specialized Partner we’re an approved Certification site and certified to provide e-learning courses.

While you can now go directly to the Academic Resource Center to download your education software, Synergis is here to help you take full advantage of the tools within the software available to you. Our long-term relationship with schools and your success in installing the software is very important to us.  As such, Synergis offers multiple options for service and support that all schools can elect to purchase.  While there is a charge for these services, we have established special pricing in alignment with current Autodesk software budgets so we can continue to provide support to you and ensure a seamless transition to this new model.

Additionally, as an Autodesk Partner, we are able to provide products and support for Autodesk licenses being used outside the classroom, in areas such as facilities management.
