SolidWorks World 2012 – Certification – The People – The Midway – The Event #sww12 #SolidWorks

The Sunday of SolidWorks World is used not only for Registrations but for a range of User Testing and feed back sessions.  Also available is the opportunity to sit for the CSWP (Certified SolidWorks Professional) examination (or any of the other 8 exams) These exams can be taken at any time online.  Personally I think you should get bonus points for sitting the exam at SolidWorks World, in a room with others!

There were 180 (of those braver than most) people sitting the CSWP exam.  59 (57 – CSWP & 2 – CSWE) of those join the ranks of the now 50,000 who have achieved the various levels of Certification since it’s inception 10 years ago.   
Take a look at the Certification selection at SolidWorks:

The Monday evening was the CSWP/ CSWE Special Event.   The USS Midway CV-41 (an un-“named” class) aircraft carrier which served the US Navy between 1945 – 1992.  Now a naval aviation museum made for the perfect venue for this years SolidWorks event!  I managed to sneak on board and stow away (alright I had an invite but I was on a roll with the whole naval thing) for what we now learn was to be the last CSWP/ CSWE Special Event. With over 700 attendees at this years event, next year they have up the ante and will be a CSWE Event
