Vectorworks Spotlight Certification Professional Certification Program is a 24-week guided program of Masterclasses to guide, train, and certify you and/or your team on comprehensive professional skills related to designing, drafting, modeling, and rendering projects created with Vectorworks Spotlight design software.

Learning professional skills with Vectorworks Spotlight at a deep level and building an intuitive understanding of the software will enable you (and your team) to:
  • better communicate your intentions with prospective customers
  • swiftly resolve support issues internally
  • professionally develop and present projects for your clients at a high level of aptitude

More efficient workflows allow you and/or your team to take on larger, more complex, and more concurrent projects over time - the larger your team, the greater your ROI.

Each of the certification program components is a Vectorworks Spotlight Masterclass designed to build upon the skills of the previous Masterclass. The program culminates with three weeks of final assigned exercises and graded certification examination to verify the participants understanding and familiarity with best practices in Vectorworks Spotlight.

I Highly recommend training with tangably

Tangably has the ability to create projects with Ve???ctorworks design software at a level of detail that few can achieve, even with a handful of the other leading software titles.

We couldn’t imagine being happier with our engagement with Tangably

Designer came back full of energy and was very complimentary of the trainer and the curriculum. Having Tangably in our hip pocket removes significant obstacles for us going forward with regards to considering potential candidates and overall recruitment. Thank you so much for your commitment and passion for the Vectorworks program and community.
