SolidWorks Certifications Exceed 50,000 Users

Industry-Recognized Achievement Provides Workers and Employers With Competitive Advantage

WALTHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 13, 2012 — Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp. announced today that it awarded its 50,000th certification in the acclaimed SolidWorks training certification program. Created more than 10 years ago, achieving certified status validates that SolidWorks® software users have the tools and capability they need to ensure success with SolidWorks software. The benefits of focusing on key skills and concepts in SolidWorks have directly translated into more job opportunities and extended career growth for SolidWorks certified professionals. In addition, employers recognize the value of the SolidWorks certification as a powerful instrument that not only maximizes their investment in SolidWorks, but also gives them a productivity advantage against their competition.

Emma Katharine Singer, a mechanical engineering student from the University of Colorado, Boulder, helped tip the scale to 50,000 certified users. Two years ago, Emma started using SolidWorks software during an internship at a lighting factory in Brooklyn. With the help of SolidWorks tutorials, Emma taught herself how to use the program in just a few days. Emma is now a Certified SolidWorks Associate (CSWA) and is using that certification as a teaching assistant, helping other engineering students learn SolidWorks.

For students, the SolidWorks certification serves as an industry-recognized achievement that can set a candidate apart from his/her peers when looking for a job. For professionals, passing the exam demonstrates the user has the skills to create high-quality designs using SolidWorks software, as well as add value to any organization. Employers rely on the certification to make better hiring decisions as well as invest in their employees’ professional development.

“The Certified SolidWorks Professional (CSWP) and Certified SolidWorks Expert (CSWE) certifications have not only enabled me to garner optimal job opportunities, but have allowed me to raise my salary as well,” said Bill Hamze of JL Audio Miramar, FL. “SolidWorks certification is serious business—it helps designers hone skills, prove proficiency, and generally become more effective and marketable. My next goal is to achieve every available SolidWorks certification.”

SolidWorks’ certification is tiered based on skill level, ranging from CSWA to CSWE for the most experienced professionals. There are also specialty designations such as surfacing and sheet metal. The program is specifically designed to meet the needs of engineers and designers in a multitude of industries. Exams are offered in several languages including, French, Portuguese, and Korean, making the certification recognizable worldwide.

“Our users are committed to continual learning and development to further career growth, and they are using our certification program to help support that,” said Jeremy Luchini, certification program manager for DS SolidWorks. “Training and learning are critical components of evolving design, and we take certification seriously—it has to be of value both to our users and to their employers. We’ve achieved that with the program to date, and are looking forward to the next milestone from our highly engaged and accomplished user base.”
