I have taken the first CSWA exam already but if I can take more than that this year I would like to do as many as I can...
You get to take either a CSWA or a CSWP exam, and then once you have passed the CSWP you can take one (1) CSWP advanced exam.
Also you get the chance to take the above once January to June and again once July to December
See this link: http://www.solidworks.com/sw/support/certification-offers-subscription-service-customer.htm and the follow on link under next steps (right hand side)
Right so I took and passed the CSWA exam in the last week. So I now need to wait until January to take the CSWP and once I have passed that I am also entitled to a CSWP advanced exam?
That is correct.
Jack Whitfield - Technically, you can take as many tests as you want - Now if you are talking about taking them for free, that is a different story.
I believe that if you are on subscription service, you are entitled to one FREE certification exam every six months per license. (I mention "per license" because if your employer has multiple licenses, and they aren't being used, I believe that you could use them. ex: If your employer has 3 licenses of SOLIDWORKS on subscription, you should be able to take up to SIX tests in one year.)
I would not recommend taking the tests until you are fully prepared, because if you do not pass, there is a "waiting period" until you can take it again.
You have option to give 2 exams every six months per seat of SOLIDWORKS. This means you can give one of CSWA – OR – CSWP and one CSWP Advanced Exam. With that said, you can only request for the exam codes once in a six months. Hope that helps.
