SOLIDWORKS Certification Exams

The Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional (CSWP) is turning 20 at SOLIDWORKS World 2018! Way back in 1998, we introduced the very first version of the CSWP exam. Since then, nearly 35,000 people have earned the right to call themselves a CSWP.  To celebrate the 20th birthday of this certification, we’re doing something very special for attendees of SOLIDWORKS World 2018. We’ve been working on the fifth version of the exam for a few months, and will have it ready to launch for the first time in Los Angeles. On Sunday February 4th, we’ll debut the latest version of the exam to attendees who have signed up to take the exam at the conference. To make it even more special, we’ll only be offering the CSWP exam that day, and it will come with some extra perks available only at SOLIDWORKS World 2018. First, a special 20th anniversary edition of the certificate will be issued. Along with that, we’ll have a goodie bag full of 20th anniversary CSWP merchandise for those who pass the exam. But be aware that these special items will only be available to those who take and pass the exam at the conference in Los Angeles. Open testing spots are limited to the first 240 people that complete their conference registration, and is limited to customers only, so be sure to register for the conference early and grab one of the spots! What if you already have a CSWP? You’re original CSWP will always remain, and this will just give you a more recent dated certificate to display along with your old one, so feel free to sign up!  We hope to see you in Los Angeles for what’s sure to be an exciting sequel!
