Quick 3d Certificate?
show user profile  3Ddeath
This is going to sound stupid, place I work at got a huge contract with the canadain goverment over a 5 year period, since its the goverment, quality of work means nothing, I need to have a certificate related to my job for this if I want to work on this thing.

Anyone know a quick way I can get a certificate? online course or something? If its not quick then low effort would be still good, If I don't learn anything I can live with that, If I learn something its a plus, but there's no way in hell i'm going to sit in a classroom all day on all my free time being bored out of my mind.

Any ideas?

check with some of your local resellers. they may offer classes that provide a certificate. If not, then they may be able to point you somewhere.

how quick is quick. I know the DAVE School is a 1 year certificate granted institution, but the cost is 30K

Check out Gnomon see if they have one.

Acutally it turns out I need...
"Secondary diploma in Digital Media, or equivalent"
I dunno if certificate is equivalent.

Kajico, yeah thats not quick and its highway robbery.

killerbee2, I wish I did that earily, my work already knows I don't have anything which is why they asked me to look into it.

A diploma? Over here in the UK, Diplomas are sort've standard at College level (College is the one before University for us). And my "National Diploma in Multimedia and Design" took two years to acquire.

That said... looking back on it. I could probably complete all of the required work in a few months. I don't know how one would go about getting it 'quickly' though.

almost every 3 day / 1 week computer training course I have been sent on for work has ended up giving me a certificate so I would have suggested something like this.

However if they want a diploma equivalent I would think that would require something more substantial.
If you have any kind of diploma then this might help, I'm guessing from what you are saying you do not have this though.

(this does sound like lame government red-tape)

Well I have no idea what would qualify as equivalent, but for example, any Cisco certificate is widely known, and to my knowledge accepted as a good proof of knowledge.
They have classes, ranging from 1 year to 3 days, but you can always just pass the test and get the certificate if you already know the stuff they require.
Cisco is IT technologies fomr networks, windows, programming, not what you need, just to say there is 'quick' degrees (provided that you really know your stuff, not quick as in pay and pass)

"Kajico, yeah thats not quick and its highway robbery."

Compared to a 3 year course at Full Sail, you learn the same at 1/3rd the time.

Also while I was there, there was a guy who was sent there by his company for the exact same reason.

They wanted to have someone certified to be able to apply for government contracts.

The school advanced him a bit and let him take only the blocks he needed, I don't know whether he still paid full tuition or not.
