HOW TO GET STARTED

What are the requirements to join 3DTraining's programs?

You must have access to a compatible computer that can run the Autodesk 3D software and Internet access.

You'll need to be able to dedicate at least 10 hours per week during the 4-month training period.

We recommend that you use a headset with a microphone so that you can speak hands-free during the live sessions.

Please Note: Prior 3D, art, or programming skills are not required to join our programs.

How do I know if my computer can handle the 3D software?

As long as your computer is a few years old, you should be able to run the programs on your existing system. However, we recommend that you check the minimum system requirements and test your system with the software that we provide with the 7-day Starter Program.

The Starter provides a trial version of the software and tutorials that you can use to check whether or not your system and software work properly for your learning needs.

How much time do I have to dedicate toward the program each week?

During the 4-month training program, you'll go through the 3-step learning process, where you spend approximately 2 hours learning the software, 4 hours working on your project, and 2 hours improving your performance each week. That means you will need to dedicate at least 10 hours per week towards the program.

All sessions are held during nights and weekends, and new phase videos are unlocked at 12 AM every Sunday morning. We provide recommended schedules for each week with the assumption that you'll spend 1-2 hours learning each day. However, some students prefer to set aside one day to complete all three steps in one go! So how you spread your learning time during the week is entirely up to you.

Can I complete the program earlier than four months?

3D is complex software, and spaced learning is better than binge learning for better retention and long-term effects. Over the past 20 years of our training experience, we found that four months is the ideal time for students to gain proficiency with the software. It takes at least 10 hours to complete the three-phase learning steps each week.

If you have more time and/or your job requires you to learn faster, you can move to the next phase videos ahead of schedule. By uploading your project for each phase in the platform, you can unlock the phase videos earlier.

How do I register for the program, and what is the enrollment process?

How does the internship program work?

3DTraining offers a 6-month internship program for selected graduates from our program. The non-paid internship program is part-time and provides additional training and experience to help increase the chances of success for our graduates.

Graduates are selected based on their performance in the program, portfolio/reel, resume, and an online interview. Once selected, they'll spend approximately 15 hours per week training and gaining work experience over the 6-month period.

The internship program is conducted online during nights and weekends to accommodate graduates who are currently studying or working during weekdays.

At the end of the 6-months, based on successful completion, we provide a work experience reference letter. Those who excel in the internship program may be offered other positions with 3DTraining or our affiliate companies based on their performance.
