Do you have a robust level of fundamental knowledge and hands-on experience with Abaqus?  If so, here is your chance to get certified!

Top employers in industry are looking for skilled students and professionals certified on 3DS Design and Simulation solutions.  SIMULIA Abaqus Certification validates that you have the skills and knowledge needed to unleash the power of Abaqus tools.

Dassault Systèmes has been a longtime advocate of Certification, primarily for its CATIA and SOLIDWORKS tools, as a reliable method to identify skilled users of its software.   A few years ago, a survey was conducted to evaluate the impact of certification on people’s careers. Analysis of the survey responses showed that certification significantly improved people’s recognition and employability, both for students and individual professionals.   Over the past two years, SIMULIA has developed and refined a comprehensive exam to assess an individual’s ability to productively use Abaqus for structural analysis.

Go to for details on the subjects covered in the Abaqus Certification Exam, and how to prepare.   The webpage even has instructions for how to download the Tangix testing software and go through a Sample Exam.  (But please note that the real exam is more difficult than the Sample Exam.)
