The VDCI Referral Program
Student engagement and student involvement are an important part of the VDCI experience. Over time, as we have spoken with our students, we have learned that students regularly recommend their CAD, BIM, C3D and other courses to their friends and colleagues. As a way of saying “thank you” to our students who recommend our Courses, Training Bundles and Technology Certificates to their friends, we offer the VDCI Course “Referred By” Program.
You can refer your friends and colleagues to any of our courses, bundles and certificate programs.
Here’s how you can participate. When you refer a friend or colleague to learn at VDCI, when your friend makes their purchase, they can enter your Student ID number into the “Referred By” area when they check out. For individual courses, we will send you a $10.00 Amazon Gift card after your friend completes the course. For training bundles, we will send you a $30.00 Amazon Gift card after your friend completes their first course.
There is no end date for the “Referred By” program. There is no limit to the number of referrals you can make.
Get involved with VDCI through our social media outlets. Keep yourself informed on industry trends, student successes, available careers, class discounts, and more!

“The Student Experts Community gave me the chance to develop many skills - especially teaching and lecturing besides the profound software knowledge I gained - what I enjoyed very much. The knowledge in Autodesk Revit gave me many good opportunities to work already during my studies.” - Angelika H.
“Being an Autodesk Student Expert has spurred me to start a CAD club at my university, through which I have met a great group of people who share my interests. Together, we teach CAD classes, participate in CAD and design competitions, and experiment with 3D printers.” - Daniele G.
"I consider the Autodesk Student Expert Program to be the utmost valuable experience as student, a place like no-where on internet, it been a great resource to enhance my network and skills by participating on event, and projects with Autodesk and Partner’s. Also, been active in this global community and the ongoing support of Autodesk team has enhanced my profile towards employability." - Karam B.

Become a VDCI Teacher’s Assistant (TA)
VDCI is always looking for TAs, to support our onsite and online students. We always welcome our most qualified students to become a Teacher’s Assistant. This is the best way to advance in a career within the educational or business training fields.
In our onsite courses, we look for students who are developing strong technical skills, and who have a natural affinity for helping people. Depending on our upcoming needs, we invite students to join us as TAs for the upcoming cycle of courses. Frequently, our TAs join us for about a year.
When we are teaching you online, we look for students who are doing well in their courses, who proactively communicate with their instructor and who are engaged in their courses’ Student Discussion Forums. The online TAs are a front-line support person for our instructors. As an online TA, you would be engaging with our VDCI students in courses which you have already completed, answering front-line questions about the curriculum. You will be working closely with our instructional staff.
As a TA, you will be provided access to the same VDCI resources with we provide to our VDCI Alumni:
- Access to the VDCI Virtual Citrix Environment
- Special Discounts on Courses
- Invitations to Training Workshops
- Included in the first group notified for a workshop
