Certification Events at 3DEXPERIENCE World: What to Expect

3DEXPEREINCE World 2020 in Nashville TN, which is taking place February 9-13,  is shaping up to be another exciting and busy four-day gathering of SOLIDWORKS customers from around the world!  Among all of the usual events attendees will see taking place, Certification Day on Sunday is also returning but with more exams and more available testing spots for those wishing to take one of our exams.  On Monday night at the conference, attendees with a Certified SOLIDWORKS Expert Certification will be treated to the annual CSWE party, which is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its initial release back in 2010.

Certification Sunday

Sunday’s Certification Day will kick off at about 10:00 am when the first group of attendees file in to take one of 14 SOLIDWORKS Exams available that day.  Then at 3:00 pm the second group of the day will come in for their chance.  In total, nearly 400 seats are available for testing in Nashville, the biggest testing event we’ve ever offered!

In addition to the 14 SOLIDWORKS Exams, we’ll also be offering two exams focused on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.  The first one will be the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform Explorer – Associate exam that is based on the Business Innovation role.  The second, and newest 3DEXPERIENCE Platform certification being launched at 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020 is the 3DEXPERIENCE Industry Innovator – Associate, which is based on the Industry Innovator role. For full details about Certification Day including a full list of exams being offered, please see the event website.

While exam spots do tend to fill up shortly before the conference starts, we do offer an on-site, stand-by list for anyone wishing to take any unfilled exam spots.  If you didn’t sign up for a spot during conference registration you can email the registration company and ask them to add your name to either the 10 am or 3 pm session.  If you decide to join the stand-by list onsite, we ask you to arrive 30-45 minutes prior to the session start time so your name can be added.

CSWE Turns 10

Since its launch in 2010, just over 4,000 people have earned the Certified SOLIDWORKS Expert Certification.  At 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020 in Nashville we’ll have some special 10th anniversary stuff for Certified SOLIDWORKS Experts (CSWEs) attending the conference, as well as a few other surprises.

For Certified SOLIDWORKS Experts attending the conference, final event details will be sent out via email about a week before the conference.  As usual, anyone planning to attend Monday night’s party will need to stop by the CSWE Event registration table to pick up a wristband that will get you into the event.  The registration table will be located near main event registration, which will be in Hall A1.
