Confidential Information Agenda… What is SolidWorks certification about CSWA vs. CSWP vs. CSWE and all the other ones What is the requirements? How do I get it? How is these things are constructed? Lets get SolidWorks rocking! Tips, tricks and of course if any questions
Confidential Information What is SolidWorks certification about SolidWorks certifications can be used as a benchmark to measure your knowledge and competency with SolidWorks software. CSWACSWA A CSWA certification is proof of your SolidWorks® expertise – cutting-edge skills that businesses seek out and reward. CSWPCSWP A CSWP has proven their ability to design and analyze parametric parts and moveable assemblies using a variety of complex features in SolidWorks. CSWECSWE A CSWE is able to solve practically any modeling problem given to them, and is traditionally the go-to SolidWorks user among their colleagues.

Confidential Information What is the requirements? You need internet connection doing the whole test. You can take the test on any level of SolidWorks 2008 or later. There is a 30-day waiting period before retaking the CSWA, and there is a 14-day waiting period before retaking any CSWP segment exam. I do not use SolidWorks or SolidWorks Simulation. Can I still take the exam with an evaluation copy? Yes. But you will have to get the evaluation version from one of the SolidWorks resellers in your area.
