Online Testing Process
All certification testing is done online. The process is as follows:
Step 1: Purchase your exam(s).
In order to take an online certification exam, you must first visit the SOLIDWORKS webstore and make a purchase.
Step 2: Take your exam(s).
Once you've purchased an online exam, you will receive two emails. One indicating that your testing account has been created, the other a receipt of your transaction. To begin your exam, simply download the virtual tester client as instructed and follow the directions. You will also need the exact information (login and password) that was supplied in the email notice.
Step 3: Print your certificate(s).
When you achieve a certification, SOLIDWORKS provides 24-hour access to your electronic certificates. Each certified user gets a custom online account where they can view, download and print their certificates.
- All exam purchases are tied to one email. If a customer purchases more than one exam, that person may transfer the credit to another user when logged into their virtualtester account.
- If you experience any difficulty, send a detailed email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Allow up to five (5) business days for a resolution.
