Welcome to 2010!  This is the first show of the year and the first show for the 5th year of the show.  This time of year is typically slow for news but it is not going to slow down in the next few weeks before SolidWorks World.  For many, SolidWorks World is a time to learn and get certified so I thought with the introduction of yet another CSWP exam last week that we could dive into the SolidWorks Certification Program.

The SolidWorks certification program has been reinvented over the past few years and in the process has made the barrior of entry accessable to everyone by automating it and reducing prices.  The CSWP test is a fraction of the cost and with the introduction of so many more industry-specific certificates, the program has become more attractive to users.

Want to take the CSWP? If you or your company is current on subscription you can get the chance to take the test for free so it will cost you nothing and if you are coming to SolidWorks World you can also come to the special event!  Want to know what it is?  Check this out! ~Lou
