AutoCAD Civil 3D Videos
Useful Civil 3D Training from public sources
Autodesk staff, Autodesk Reseller staff, and consultants produce a wide range of video content. Some is product sales demo, but a lot of the staff and/or consultant recordings, lists, and channels include useful application training and helpful tips and tricks for Infrastructure Design products.
Content that is significant video training is listed here.

Yes. A surface model import from Infraworks into Civil 3D (in the 2019 release) really is this easy!
First - Jeff's note from the previous post about the quality of the surface is important:
NOTE: Point clouds created from imagery will produce surface elevations matching a site’s vegetation: grass, brush, crops, etc. (Basically, the surface represents what the camera “sees”.) Point clouds created from Lidar however, will provide the most accurate bare earth extraction as the laser used to collect the data is capable of penetrating vegetation.
