what is solidworks certification about
What is SolidWorks certification about
  • SolidWorks certifications can be used as a benchmark to measure your knowledge and competency with SolidWorks software.
  • CSWAA CSWA certification is proof of your SolidWorks® expertise – cutting-edge skills that businesses seek out and reward.
  • CSWPA CSWP has proven their ability to design and analyze parametric parts and moveable assemblies using a variety of complex features in SolidWorks.
  • CSWEA CSWE is able to solve practically any modeling problem given to them, and is traditionally the go-to SolidWorks user among their colleagues.

  • CSWP-Surfacing
  • CSWP-Mold Tools
what is the requirements
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.
