3D Lift Plan Certification Classes

A series of one-day training courses designed to teach you everything you need to know to become proficient enough with 3D Lift Plan to pass the certification exam given at the end of the class.

3D Lift Plan Certification

Students who successfully pass the exam will become certified at the level of training they have successfully completed, allowing them to display certification logos on their lift plans, letterheads, email signatures, etc.  Their name will also be listed on our site.

Can I take the exams without attending a class?

Yes, we offer online certification exams. View Details

Online certification exams consist of two parts...

  1. A knowledge exam consisting of multiple choice questions.
  2. A practical exam where the user is asked to create lift plans based on specific real-world scenarios.

What to bring...

  • Laptop Computer

    You can use a Mac for the Level 1 class, but a PC is required for the level 2 class.

    You will need the following software...

    • Unity 3D Web Player.

      Make sure you can view the 3D image on this page. It requires the Unity 3D Web Player.

    • A screen capture program.

      You can use the Snipping Tool that is found in your start menu and the accessories folder, but we recommend Snagit. You can download a free trial version.

    • Current version of Adobe Reader.
      PDF creation program like Adobe PDF or Blue Beam. If you don’t have one you can install CutePDF for free. Be careful not to install all the extra toolbars and things they ask you if you want to install.
    • (for the level 2 class)
  • We recommend changing your dpi setting for your resolution to 96dpi or small resolution. If your IT department needs to do this please have them do it before you get to the boot camp. Otherwise we can help you if need be once you get here.
  • For our level 2 class you will need a couple Click Once programs that will need to be installed. We can cover that during class, but if your IT department has your security tight on installing programs and allowing these programs to communicate with our server, please have your IT department contact us to make sure your computer is set up.
