CSWA and no SW work experience?

We have a job candidate who is CSWA certified and, though they have used CAD and solid modeling professionally for many years, learned SW on a student version and has never used SW for work.


So, could one pass the CSWA and still not have the SW skills to function at work? I am not talking about all the other skills and abilities that go into being a mechanical engineer, just the CAD part. How would you compare this person with someone who seems equally talented and has used SW professionally for awhile, but is not certified?
