Solid Edge is reviving the user certification program, and you can be one of the first in the door. At Solid Edge University this year, a limited number of users will get the opportunity to take the test and become the first wave of the new Certified Solid Edge Professionals. The certification program will later expand to include on-line testing and a level for students.
The test will be offered at Atlanta's Peachtree Plaza Westin in two sessions. The first session will be on May 13, 3:30 - 5:30 and the second session on May 14, 1:45 - 3:45. The test will normally cost $99, but it will be free for a limited number of registered Solid Edge University attendees. Details on official sign up will be forthcoming, but for now, if you are coming to Solid Edge University in Atlanta and want to make sure that you are among the first to take this test, please send an email to me, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
