Currently there are two forms of certification.
1. VAR certification where the VAR must pass a written exam.
2. SolidWorks Certified Service Partner where the partner must pass both written and hands-on tests. The Service Partners are qualified to provide implementation services to customers.
Currently there are no certification programs for customers or end users.
Is there any certification programs available for customers or end users now?? You are able to gain a certification in almost everything else SolidWorks, but when it comes to Enterprise, you either have to be a VAR or a Service Partner. As an individual contractor, I can't complete the Partner tests as you have to have 2 people complete it (from what i've read/understood).
Appreciate any thoughts or comments
