Certification

SolidWorks certifications can be employed as a yardstick to compute your familiarity and proficiency with SolidWorks software.

CSWA

Certification

  Being a Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) can help you to stay ahead of the competition and make your resume different from the crowd in the job market.

A CSWA certification validates you expertise in SolidWorks® tools, thereby highlighting your aptitude and cutting-edge skills that companies seek to reward.

Recommended Self-paced training:
SolidWorks Tutorials
Exam Length: 3 hours

Minimum Passing grade: 70%

Re-test Policy:  In order to re-attempt the CSWA exam, you need to pass a minimum 30 day waiting period before going for your next attempt. For each exam attempt, you also need to purchase a CSWA exam credit.

When the candidates pass, all of them will receive SolidWorks online certification along with a personal listing on the CSWA directory.
In order to clear the exam, you need to be hands-on in following challenging areas:

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

 

CSWP

Certification

You can only be entitled to be called a Certified SolidWorks Professional if you successfully pass our high-class skills examination.

A CSWP possesses the ability to invent and examine moveable assemblies and parametric parts employing the complex features of SolidWorks software.

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

As per the current criteria, the CSWP Exam has been divided three different segments. The new system offers you the convenience to give the exam in instalments. The segmented exam pattern lets you to give any exam in any order and at any time, and if you desire, you can even take all three exams in a row. If you make it through a segment, you will not be required to take it again. If your attempt goes unsuccessful, you will need to purchase only that segment and take it once more until you pass the same. Once you clear all the three segments successfully, CSWP Certification will be automatically offered to you.

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

Minimum Passing grade: 75% in each segment

Re-test Policy:  : In order to re-attempt the CSWP exam, you need to pass a minimum 14 day waiting period before going for your next attempt. For each exam attempt, you also need to purchase a CSWP exam credit.

When the candidates pass, all of them receive electronic certificates along with a personal listing on the CSWP directory.

In order to clear the exam, you need to be hands-on in following challenging areas:
Segment 1: (90 Minutes)

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

Segment 2: (40 Minutes)

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

Note: The computer on which you are running SolidWorks should be installed with to make sure that your Design Table functionality works appropriately for the exam.

Segment 3: (80 Minutes)

  • Creating an assembly
  • Doing collision detection when moving a part in an assembly
  • Adding parts to an assembly
  • Replacing a part with another part in an assembly
  • Mates
  • Using a coordinate system to perform mass properties analysis
  • Creating a coordinate system
