Questions Frequently Asked

What is the CSWA Certification?

CSWA stands for Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate. It is SOLIDWORKS’s most popular and most basic certificate to verify your ability and essential knowledge to use the software. It proves your skills to use SOLIDWORKS to model designs meeting the industry's standard practices.

What did They Say?

"I wanted to take the (CSWA) certification, so I tried the official practice exam and found myself frustrated with the lack of feedback on it, so I went to the TforDesign site and bought their practice exam. The exam was more thorough than the official practice exam, but even better, you got to review, and further, you could sign up for office hours where you could directly discuss your questions and parts of the test live. They not only were quick to respond to my questions but went above and beyond making a video explaining my questions to me thoroughly--giving me the insight I needed to feel confident and ready to take on the CSWA exam."
