Varsity Tutors offers Portland SOLIDWORKS certification training for people in the product development industry who want to demonstrate their skills with various SOLIDWORKS software programs. No matter which of the 20 SOLIDWORKS certifications you're seeking, we can enroll you in a live, online class that can help you improve your study methods and prepare for your test or tests.

There are three levels of SOLIDWORKS exams you can take: a certified SOLIDWORKS Associate (CSWA), certified SOLIDWORKS Professional (CWSP) or Professional Advanced (CWSPA), and certified SOLIDWORKS Expert (CSWE). The two CSWE exams, one for Mechanical Design (CSWE) and one for Simulation (CSWE-S), require you to have passed the required exams from the CWSA and CWSP levels. Each one has a separate set of prerequisites, but both require you to have passed the Professional Mechanical (CWSP) exam. The CSWE-S prerequisites are the Associate and Professional Simulation exams (CSWA-S and CSWP-S), while the CSWE exam requires you to have passed at least four Professional Advanced exam topics (Sheet Metal, Weldments, Mold Tools, Drawing Tools, and Surfacing).

The exams are on different topics and have varying numbers of questions and types of questions, but they have some things in common. Specifically, they prove your skills with the SOLIDWORKS software programs and they can help you land a new job, a promotion, or negotiate a higher salary for your current position. Earning your certification(s) allows you to stand out and make a positive impression on employers, potential employers, and other businesses and professionals.

As mentioned, your Portland SOLIDWORKS certification course is conducted online with a qualified instructor who has been vetted and interviewed. They have the requisite knowledge and good communication skills, so they can lead you and your classmates through a thorough review of the test that you're studying for. Instructors can guide the class in a variety of ways. They can give in-depth lectures on sketch entities and tools, creating and adding parts to an assembly, or parting surface creation. They can also facilitate guided discussions in which all students can participate, whether the conversation is focused on test content or test format.

Reviewing the content that will be on the test is important, but since the majority of the concepts should be things you use daily, there's another important part of helping you prepare for your SOLIDWORKS exam. Test-taking strategies are important to learn for several reasons.

You need to use proper time management to answer all the questions within the allotted time frame. Your instructor can provide techniques to improve your pace, if necessary, without sacrificing accuracy. It's also possible your peers could offer suggestions that could help your pacing.

You should also be aware of what to do if you're not sure what the answer to a question is, and your instructor can include that in Portland SOLIDWORKS certification class discussions. There are ways to eliminate multiple-choice answers and there are ways to analyze the wording of the question to be sure you know what it is asking of you. These kinds of discussions can give you a deeper understanding of the test and the content it contains.

Varsity Tutors wants to make studying for your SOLIDWORKS certification as convenient as possible. We offer either two- or four-week courses that can match your study needs and the time you have before your exam. They begin monthly, so you're always able to start in a short amount of time. Online classes eliminate the need for a commute, so you can more easily fit them into your already busy schedule. You can attend from home, your office, or even a branch of the Multnomah County Library
