SOLIDWORKS Certified Professionals - CSWP


A Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional is someone who has taken and successfully passed the SOLIDWORKS advanced skills examination. By completing this qualification, you will have proven your ability to design and analyse parametric parts and moveable assemblies using a variety of complex features from within the SOLIDWORKS software.

The current release of the CSWP Exam is now taken in three separate parts. This means you no longer have to set aside a large amount of time to take the exam all in one go. You can take each part separately at a time to suit yourself, and you can take them in any order; or you can choose to take all three in one go. Once you’ve  passed a part of the exam, you will not need to take it again. If you fail and need to retake a part, you can purchase just that part and take it again when you choose, after 14 days. Once all three parts have been successfully completed and passed you will automatically receive your CSWP Certification.


Exam Length: 3 hours 30 minutes (Total of all parts)

Minimum Passing grade: 75% in each part

Re-test Policy

There is a minimum 14-day waiting period between every attempt of the same CSWP part of the exam. Also, you must purchase an exam credit for the CSWP part for each exam attempt.

All candidates will receive notification of where you can download your electronic certificate and business card logos. You will also have a personal listing on the CSWP directory* once you have completed the whole exam.

*This option must be set in your online certification account to show up in the directory.
