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

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.
