    How do I take my SOLIDWORKS certification test with a standard voucher?



    This document outlines two different methods of using a standard voucher to take a certification test.

    Before following these steps, make sure that your voucher is a standard voucher. A standard voucher does not have a 'T-' or 'P-' prefix, and it is not to be confused with a coupon. Redemption of a standard voucher deposits a credit into your SOLIDWORKS VirtualTester account. You may wish to refer to this document: What is the difference between standard vouchers and trackable vouchers?

    c. Paste or type your code into the 'Redeem VT-Voucher' field and click the 'Redeem' button.


    You will see a notification that the redemption was successful.
