As a SolidWorks customer, you are most likely purchasing your SolidWorks software, and subscription services from A Value Added Reseller (VAR). So how can you tell what parts of the SolidWorks Software your VAR is certified to teach?
There has always been a reseller directory where you could find out this kind of information about your VAR, but it wasn't tied into any system that would keep it automatically updated. That is until today. The Certification team at SolidWorks has completed the software tie in to allow the status of a VAR's achievements to be viewed live on the web. So how does it work?
Let's say an employee of a VAR takes his Workgroup PDM Support Technician Certification Exam, and passes it. The power of the Tangix Virtual Tester software uploads those results to the profile of the VAR, and they are instantly awarded the certification. If that employee leaves the VAR, his profile is transfered and the VAR he left looses the certification.
This ensures that when you want to find a Certified Training Center, you can be sure you are choosing one that has someone in place to teach what you are looking for.
