Recent customer comment for Certification using MySolidWorks: has been an indispensable tool for us since its inception.  We currently use it for all staff, including myself.  It’s a great incentive for our employees to advance their knowledge on their own time.  Once each employee is done the Associate Exam Prep course, they may take the Solidworks Certified Associate exam.  Once they’re done with that, they move on to the Professional Exam Prep Course, and so on.  They get trained and certified all in one go.  It really is a win-win situation.
