New SOLIDWORKS Professional Flow Exam Now Available

A new SOLIDWORKS Professional Flow exam is now available! SOLIDWORKS Flow is one of the top two most requested exam topics when we have surveyed users. This exam was developed for users who have gone through the SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation training course and have a good understanding of how to set up fluid flow problems, run and extract results for various types of real-life scenarios.

The challenges in this exam include a variety of common fluid flow simulation applications, such as liquid and gas, internal and external flows, multiple inlets and outlets, conjugated heat transfer, natural and force convection, as well as mesh refinement, results extraction and interpretation.

The exam is set to last up to 90 minutes and consists of 13 Hands-On questions requiring the use of SOLIDWORKS CAD and SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation software (version 2018 or later).

There is no prerequisite to take this exam.



You must use at least SOLIDWORKS 2018 with SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation 2018 for this exam. Any use of a previous version will result in the inability to open some of the testing files. Also, a 14-day waiting period between retakes applies in the event the user does not pass on the first attempt.

We are delighted to add Fluid Flow Simulation Users to our Professional community. For more information about this exam, please visit our Certification Catalog.
