SAN FRANCISCO, California, 10/1/2013 - Ideate, Inc., an Autodesk Gold Value Added Reseller, today announced that Ideate AEC Application Specialist Gaurav Bagga was awarded Autodesk Instructor Certification (ACI) upon completion of the three-day ACI Workshop in San Diego, California, August 20 –August 22, 2013.
