Certifications

  • SolidWorks certified Associate (CSWA)
  • SolidWorks certified Professional (CSWP)

CSWA

As a Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA), you will stand out from the crowd in today’s competitive job market.

CSWA certification is proof of your SolidWorks® expertise with cutting-edge skills that businesses seek out and reward.

Recommended Self-paced training:
SolidWorks Tutorials

Exam Length: 3 hours

Minimum Passing grade: 70%

Re-test Policy:  There is a minimum 30 day waiting period between every attempt of the CSWA exam.  Also, a CSWA exam credit must be purchased for each exam attempt.

All candidates receive electronic certificates and personal listing on the CSWA directory* when they pass.

The exam features hands-on challenges in the following areas:

  • Sketch entities – lines, rectangles, circles, arcs, ellipses, centerlines
  • Sketch tools – offset, convert, trim
  • Sketch relations
  • Boss and cut features – extrudes, revolves, sweeps, lofts
  • Fillets and chamfers
  • Linear, circular, and fill patterns
  • Dimensions
  • Feature conditions – start and end
  • Mass properties
  • Materials
  • Inserting components
  • Standard mates – coincident, parallel, perpendicular, tangent, concentric, distance, angle
  • Reference geometry – planes, axis, mate references
  • Drawing views
  • Annotations

CSWP

A Certified SolidWorks Professional is an individual who has successfully passed our advanced skills examination.

Every CSWP has to prove theability to design and analyze parametric parts and moveable assemblies using a variety of complex features in SolidWorks software.

Recommended Training Courses:
SolidWorks Essentials, SolidWorks Drawings, Advanced Part Modeling, and Advanced Assembly Modeling.

The current release of the CSWP Exam is broken down into three separate segments.  This new system means you no longer have to set aside a block of time to take the entire exam in one sitting.  The segmented exam allows you to take each segment at any time, and in any order, and if you choose you can take all three in a row.  Once you pass a segment, you will not have to take it again.  If you fail a segment, you will be able to purchase just that segment and take it again.  Once all three segments have been successfully completed, you will automatically receive your CSWP Certification.

Exam Length: 3 hours 30 minutes (All three segments)

Minimum Passing grade: 75% in each segment

Re-test Policy:  There is a minimum 14 day waiting period between every attempt of the same CSWP Segment exam. Also, an exam credit for that CSWP Segment must be purchased for each exam attempt.

All candidates receive electronic certificates, business card logos, and get listed on the CSWP’s directory* when they pass.

Exam features hands-on challenges in these areas:

Segment 1: (90 Minutes)

  • Creating a part from a drawing
  • Using linked dimensions and equations to aid in modeling
  • Using equations to relate dimensions
  • Updating parameters and dimension sizes
  • Mass property analysis
  • Modifying geometry on initial part to create a more complex part

Segment 2: (40 Minutes)

  • Creating configurations from other configurations
  • Changing configurations
  • Mass properties
  • Changing features of an existing SolidWorks part
  • Creation and modification of a Design Table in an existing part

Note: Excel should be installed on the computer you are running SolidWorks on, to ensure that your Design Table functionality works properly for the exam.

Segment 3: (80 Minutes)

  • Creating an assembly
  • Adding parts to an assembly
  • Doing collision detection when moving a part in an assembly
