  Aimed primarily at students leaving education as a great addition to their CV. The exam tests competencies in solid, assembly modelling and drawing fundamentals. Focusing on design intent and ability to maintain robust models.   As a Certified SOLIDWORKSAssociate (CSWA), you will stand out from the crowd in today’s competitive job market. The CSWA certification is proof of your SOLIDWORKS expertise with cutting-edge skills that businesses seek out and reward.

SOLIDWORKS Professional - CSWP

  The most recognised of all the exams. CSWP is split into 3 segments totalling 3.5 hours testing part modelling, editing parts and assembly creation. Professional exams can also be taken on industry specific elements.   As a Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional (CSWP), you will prove your ability to design and analyse parametric parts and moveable assemblies using a variety of complex features in SOLIDWORKS software. On top of this Professional exams can also be taken on industry specific elements of the software: Sheet Metal, Weldments, Surfacing, Mold Tools, Drawings & Simulation.  


The pinnacle of the SOLIDWORKS exams, and quite rightly tough to achieve. As well as the 85% pass mark, to even qualify to attempt the CSWE exam, users must have passed the CSWP and 4 of the CSWP industry specific modules.   As a Certified SOLIDWORKSExpert (CSWE), you will be well rounded in your knowledge of all areas of the SOLIDWORKS software. You will be able to solve practically any modelling problem given to you and will traditionally be the go-to SOLIDWORKS user among your colleagues.
