Frequently Asked Questions

GENERAL

What is Game Development?


Game development is the creation in terms of design, coding, and deployment of a game. These skills can also be transferred to other non-game development aspects, such as simulations, marketing, training and more.




How does the Unity Certified Associate course differ from the game development courses provided by other providers?


The Unity Certified Associate course is endorsed by Unity Technologies, the company behind the Unity game engine. All material and certification used in the course are created or endorsed by Unity Technologies.




What happens if my preferred class is fully booked? How do I get notified of new class openings?


You can choose to join the waiting list, or enrol in another run. If you choose to join the waiting list, we will only be able to allocate a slot if someone drops out.

Do I need to install any software beforehand? Is the software free?


You would need to download the free version of Unity. More information regarding this will be sent to you closer to the date itself.




I have no prior experience. Will I be able to understand the content taught in the course?


Yes. The course is designed for: - Beginners with no prior experience - Amateurs who wish to formally learn to use the Unity 3D engine - Professionals who wish to obtain Unity Certification As such, the trainer will cover the basics needed for beginners to catch up. You will also have access to a Learning Management System (LMS), which has resources for you to better understand the course material.




How much time do I have to spend to self-read or self-study materials outside the course?


This depends on your personal learning style. Each week, the Gen Infiniti Academy team will send you a list of pre-readings corresponding to that week’s class. You are strongly encouraged to pre-read these materials, especially in preparation for the exams. We recommend spending 1 to 2 hours going through the pre-readings weekly.





CERTIFICATION

Does the certification expire? Do I have to renew it?


The Unity Certified Associate certificate expires within 2 years. This is to ensure that all Unity Certified Associates are equipped with the most relevant skills needed in the current industry. You can renew the certificate if you wish.




How does the Unity Certified Associate certification boost my resume?
