SOLIDWORKS – Why get certified?

In today’s competitive marketplace, staying ahead of the competition and improving skill levels is crucial for both employers and employees. A good way of achieving this is with SOLIDWORKS Certification.

In this blog, we’ll be taking a look at some of the many advantages it brings to the table for both parties.

Benefits for Employers

  1. Quality of output

Skilled workforce. When you hire or train your staff to become SOLIDWORKS-certified professionals, you can be assured of a high level of competence in 3D design and engineering.

SOLIDWORKS’ ease of use is a double-edged sword in many ways. Because it’s so easy to use, you can often find there are many ways of getting to the point where you have useable geometry and drawings. However, you can find problems occurring when you need to make a change.

Certified employees adhere to SOLIDWORKS best practices, leading to consistently higher quality work. Their work will be similar across the board as they will all be following the same best principles and practices as recommended by SOLIDWORKS and, most importantly, they will be designing with change in mind.

Their work will be easy to understand and to edit by members of the team that didn’t originally work on it, saving huge amounts of time when needing to modify existing designs. You also don’t suffer when a member of staff leaves with potentially crucial knowledge regarding a particular product in their heads.

  1. Improved Productivity

Certified professionals are more efficient. They work faster and with fewer errors. Their work is easily changed and modified without the whole model falling apart – a very common occurrence we’re sure your teams have noticed when multiple individuals have worked on an assembly.

  1. Competitive Edge

Customers prefer working with companies with certified professionals because they can trust in the quality of the work delivered. Your reputation for good work, consistency and high quality products will proceed you.

Your manufacturing partners will also welcome the clarity and precision of your work. Less to’ing and fro’ing means work just gets done faster.

  1. Employee Retention and talent attraction

Motivated Workforce. Offering certification opportunities and recognising certified employees boosts morale and staff retention rates.

Companies supporting professional development through certifications are more attractive to top talent, especially talented graduates.  Continuous improvement is a virtuous cycle making employees happier, more effective and productive, and more likely to want to stay.

Benefits for Employees

  1. Career Advancement Opportunities.

Professional Recognition. Earning a SOLIDWORKS Certification demonstrates your commitment to excellence and proficiency in 3D design. It’s a badge of honour that sets you apart from the competition.

Higher Earning Potential. Certified SOLIDWORKS professionals often command higher salaries due to their specialised skills and credibility.

  1. Enhanced Skill Set.

The certification program covers a wide range of SOLIDWORKS functionality. Completing this program, you’ll become a master of the software, covering advanced techniques in detail.

Problem-Solving Skills. Certification exams include practical challenges that hone your ability to solve real-world engineering problems efficiently.

  1. Increased Confidence and Job Satisfaction.

Personal Growth. Gaining certification is a challenging but rewarding journey.

Job Security. In a rapidly evolving tech landscape, having the latest skills makes you an asset to your organisation, enhancing your job security.
