SolidWorks Certifications Exceed 50,000 Users

Industry-Recognized Achievement Provides Workers and Employers With Competitive Advantage

WALTHAM, Mass., USA, 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 to 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.”

SolidWorks’ Let’s Go Design Web Series Delivers “Hot Rod Baby Buggy”

– Crowdsourced video design series produces stroller that makes dads proud –

WALTHAM, Mass. – February 10, 2012 – Let’s Go Design Project 3 from Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp. is a wrap!  Over the past several months, the Let’s Go Design team has worked with the SolidWorks community to design and prototype a “Hot Rod Baby Buggy” from the ground up. The buggy is now a reality with every element — except the bolts — designed using SolidWorks® software. The final episode, which went live in mid January, recaps the successes and challenges of the project and demonstrates the buggy in motion.

 

The buggy is a vehicle built for dads, incorporating tank treads, a windshield and an innovative steering solution. The product had to fit on the sidewalk, be all-terrain, motorized, cool and—of course—safe for babies. The verdict in the series’ final episode: mission accomplished!

“Crowdsourcing is growing as a design philosophy, and the ‘Hot Rod Baby Buggy’ is a great example of how to succeed with collaborative design,” says Jeremy Luchini, SolidWorks Certification Manager and Let’s Go Design team leader. “We got a lot of great ideas from our viewers, and tackled some big challenges together, such as adhering the tank treads to the buggy. We’ll be discussing crowdsourcing at this year’s SolidWorks World in February, and would love to hear opinions on the outcome of this project, as well as viewers’ plans for crowdsourcing projects, at the show.”

All episodes of Project 3, along with previous projects in the Let’s Go Design series, including the Ultimate CAD Chair and a Multisport Practice Cage, can be viewed online at http://letsgodesign.tv/. Project design files are also available for each project. The “Hot Rod Baby Buggy” will be on display at SolidWorks World 2012, February 12-15 in San Diego.
