The growth of SolidWorks in industry has fueled many colleges and universities to add SolidWorks training to their engineering programs.

SolidWorks offers many nationally recognized certifications that your high school students can earn. The CSWA (Certified SolidWorks Associate) is the first level of certificate.

This Workshop will help you prepare your students to take and pass the exam.

Topics covered include:
* 3D Solid Modeling
* Assemblies
* Constraints
* Global Variables
