Questions Frequently Asked

What is the CSWP Certification?

CSWP stands for Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional. It is an advanced Mechanical Design Certification proving your advanced ability to design and analyze parts and dynamic assemblies.

Why Should I Become a CSWP?

Becoming a CSWP sets you apart as a person who has an advanced understanding of SOLIDWORKS, adding a layer of distinction above the majority of the basic software users. It will also help prove to potential employers that you are a highly competent professional using SOLIDWORKS. However, becoming a CSWP is not a requirement for mastering the software.

How to Prepare for the CSWP Exam and Become a Certified SOLIDWORKS User?

The CSWP exam covers advanced mechanical design tools in both designing parts and building fixed and dynamic assemblies. In addition to many design evaluation tools. Passing the exam will require considerable dedication to both study and practice. The exam will also require you to be quick in thinking in applying different commands to solve the questions within the given time. The best way to prepare is to master all the expected tools and spend lots of time practicing.

Can I Become a CSWP Without Being a CSWA?

Yes, if you have all the skills required to become a CSWP, you can skip the CSWA. However, all the skills expected for the CSWA are also expected of a CSWP, in addition to much more.

Capstone project require learners to make a radial engine from scratch

Capstone Project

At the end of the program, you will have a chance to do a capstone project to reinforce all you learned by practice. In this, you will be given a set of engineering drawings. You will need to interpret them and construct a radial engine assembly of 56 parts, including sub-assemblies and multiple parts configurations. In addition to the capstone project being a good practice, it will also be an excellent addition to your portfolio.

Certificate of Completion

Once you complete all the program materials, you will get a downloadable certificate of completion. More importantly, you will be able to highlight your SOLIDWORKS skills in your resume.
