About the certification
This is a formal Dassault Systemes Certification Test written and delivered online, with hands-on challenges based on industrial use cases that will require you to design, modify and analyse parts and assemblies. Fundamental understanding of design intent and drafting principles are assessed with multiple-choice questions.
As a 3DEXPERIENCE Mechanical Designer – Associate, you will have proven your knowledge and skills with CATIA fundamental modeling techniques after initial training and between one to six months of regular practice using CATIA Mechanical Design core products (Part Design, Assembly Design, and Drafting). As a Certified 3DEXPERIENCE Platform User, you can boost your career and demonstrate your proficiency in world-leading industry design solutions.
Process of Certification
This is a formal Dassault Systemes Certification online exam, with hands-on challenges based on industrial use cases that will require you to design, modify and analyse parts and assemblies. Fundamental understanding of design intent and drafting principles are assessed with multiple-choice questions, and answers are submitted online live during the exam. At the end, you will be given a score and confirmation on whether you have passed. The pass mark is 70%. Recommended preparation courses
