How do you get recognition of your skills or you want to be involved in better work or been seen as making a difference? How do you show your difference?

Or if when job seeking how do you differentiate yourself from the rest of the pack?

It’s all about having something unique that gives value to your employer   

I had a friend who said you should draw pretty flowers on your CV! – whether he ever did that I don’t know, but in the competitive world we live you have to have a difference. That’s what sells. In sales jargon it’s called a Unique Selling Point, and when going for a job or looking to improve your position, that’s what you need. ever did that I don’t know, but in the competitive world we live you have to have a difference.

Design is now communicated through 3D CAD or PLM systems. It is the tool through which engineer’s express thoughts, so isn’t it the right thing to do to show that you have these skills and have them confirmed by independent assessment? In many safety critical roles, technicians have to have certification to maintain an aircraft for example, or service gas appliances. So why not design engineers?


Skills Testing

To enable this, Dassault Systemes have created a series of live interactive tests, to assess CATIA skills in Part Modelling, Assembly Modelling and Surface Modelling. Taking around two hours, each of the tests asks multiple choice questions on modelling techniques and then has a live session using CATIA to create a 3D model for subsequent interrogation.

These represent a deep and exhaustive approach to assessing and certifying your knowledge.
