Getting certified requires serious preparation. Check the certification descriptions thoroughly to see how best to prepare for your Dassault Systèmes' certification exam. All Professional Level Certifications require at least initial hands-on experience in addition to either training at a Dassault Systèmes Authorized Education Partner, your university or school or online via 3DEXPERIENCE© Edu SPACE.

The Professional level exams are delivered at one of our Authorized Certification Centers. You will find the list of the current centers under the Partners section of the website. If you are a student you should also ask your professor whether your university or school has a private Certification Center where you can take your exam.

On the day of your exam, you will be required to show an official identification document, with a recent photograph (driver's license, passport, or equivalent).  You will take the exam in a room that is dedicated to that purpose. The room is typically monitored via video camera or an exam proctor to deter cheating.  You are not allowed to take anything into the testing room to assist you with your exam. No pencils, pens, pages, additional paper, cell phones or any other device are allowed in the exam area of the testing center.  There will be a confidentiality agreement that you must acknowledge by clicking on an "I agree" button.  When you finish the exam, your score will appear on the screen. If successful, your electronic certificate will automatically be generated and stored in your account for download.

A 'Public' Certification Center is open to anyone who wants to take a Dassault Systèmes exam. A 'Private' Certification Center is dedicated to the University's or School's students. View the current list of our Certification Centers.

Associate level exams are taken online from 3DEXPERIENCE© Edu SPACE. Credits will be consumed when taking these exams. Credits as well as learning experience libraries containing these self-proctored exams may be purchased from our Business partners.

When you fail an exam, there is a 14-day waiting period before retaking the same exam. Note: when you pass an exam with success, you cannot retake it.

When you pass a 3DEXPERIENCE exam with success, you will be granted with a digital badge shareable on social media. Other exams, when passed with success, deliver an electronic certificate that is automatically generated.

No break is allowed during the exams.
