Welcome to the Design Training page. This page is intended to be the hub for all design training related to design basic training and CAD training that is offered at MDOT.
Use this navigation bar at the right side of this screen to navigate to the desired training resource. A helpful video is provided below showing how to navigate the website.
Check out our Onboarding Stream for content that every new designer (and experienced designer) must know. Please not that consultants cannot yet access this stream channel. Check back at this site frequently as we expect these videos to grow as time goes on. The videos in the stream are also available for download in the sections below.
Creating a Bentley account should be the first thing that you do when using CONNECT edition products. Users must sign in to their Bentley account through the Connection Client in order to obtain a license for CONNECT edition products. Bentley accounts also provide access to additional resources including Bentley Learn and Bentley 365 services, depending on the organization's Bentley License.
Bentley Learn is a web-based training platform that that houses a plethora of video based, on-demand training. All MDOT training material will have a Bentley Learn course as a prerequisite to taking the MDOT course.
All MDOT employees with a Bentley account have access to Bentley Learn. Consultants may not have access to Bentley Learn as it depends on the entitlements that were purchased with the design software.
CONNECT Advisor is an application that runs inside of all CONNECT edition products. It gives users the ability to search for content specific training. CONNECT Advisor searches many places to find suitable training for users including Bentley Learn, Bentley Communities, and YouTube.
Another nice feature is that CONNECT Advisor knows which Bentley Learn courses you are enrolled in, and the Learn content can be accessed right in the design software without going to Bentley Learn. Often times, using CONNECT Advisor will load much faster than accessing the training of the full Bentley Learn site.
