COE Certification - New to 2014!

COE Certification Program  


New this year at the COE Annual PLM Conference and TechniFair, COE is offering a new certification program to provide users, vendors, consultants and students with a globally valuable index for measuring and promoting their knowledge and skills within the PLM ecosystem. 


COE's certification program provides a hands-on standard measure of DS PLM product knowledge and enables participants to assess their skills against market norms.


The certification program also offers valuable feedback on training programs by providing a quantitative before-and-after measurement of trainees' acquired skills.


COE's certification is only offered at COE's Annual PLM Conference.  Registered attendees can take the test at a discounted price of $99.  There will be an onsite rate of $149 for those who are only participating in the certification and not attending the Conference.

The Certification for CATIA Users section of the COE CATIA V6 Certification page ( states “Optional preparation includes the DS CATIA Companion Tool.”.

How do students using the student edition of CATIA gain access to the “DS CATIA Companion Tool”, which is presumably the Dassault Systèmes Companion Learning Space ( which is referenced in the Certification for V6 Users ( page?

What other preparation is recommended?

I'm currently using the following:

And am considering:

Is there any other recommended preparation?  Dimensions and/or specificatins for the sample part picture provided?  Any other samples that we could attempt to practice creating?

A single part example is an insufficient datapoint to gauge what level of complexity will be expected from us since not all parts utilize all possible features.
