CATIA Certification

04/11/2016

Practice-Based Exams
The exams have been completely revisited to better test users' skills and competencies on CATIA by introducing practice-based scenarios which reflect real life design problems. They are available on a new online platform that runs concurrently with CATIA.

The first level exams are intended to test users on the fundamental modeling techniques using CATIA Mechanical Design core products: Part Design, Assembly Design, Surface Design and Drafting. 

These exams are available on CATIA V5 (R19 and higher) and V6R2013X, in multiple languages: Simplified Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese (Brazilian) and Spanish.
