RELAUNCHED in 2024: SOLIDWORKS Certification Exam Redemption System

January 24, 2024

Finally, the long-anticipated SOLIDWORKS certification redemption system for active subscription customers has arrived.

From the 17th of January 2024 onwards, you will be able to directly access and claim your free SOLIDWORKS certification exam vouchers as part of your SOLIDWORKS subscription benefits.

For context, a previous blog article wrote about a period where customers or VARs had to email certification@solidworks.com directly to request and redeem their free SOLIDWORKS certification exam vouchers. You can find out more about it along with other information about your SOLIDWORKS customer portal and accounts at:
/blog/mysolidworks-your-new-one-stop-solidworks-customer-portal/

So…where can you access this new redemption system? Well, it is back at the 3DEXPERIENCE Certification Center site:
https://3dexperience.virtualtester.com/

 

Note:
To access the certification center portal, you need to have a 3DEXPERIENCE Certification Account (you can create one if you don’t).

Do ensure the email address you use for the account login is also the same as your 3DEXPERIENCE ID and also registered in the company’s asset within the DSx. Client, please refer to the previous blog article listed above and contact your company administrator, or your Reseller, to link your 3DEXPERIENCE ID.

To find the redemption system page, you can click under “Subscription Offer” tab, or under “My Account” -> “Your Credits” page.

And “Lookup my licenses”. Refer below screenshots.
