The wait is finally over! PTC University is thrilled to present to you our new Creo Certification Program. What does this mean for you? A Creo certification means that you have proven your expertise and are at the height of competitiveness in your industry. You’ll get better and faster at your job, your resume will shine in a crowded field, and you’ll gain respect and clout in the industry. Anyone can claim that they are proficient in a product, but our Creo certification is a guarantee that you are the best at what you do. The one constant in our industry is change – therefore our exams will be continuously updated along with the product to ensure you remain certified on our latest version. The certification is good for two years at which point it’ll be time to recertify.

But we know that it’s not a one size fits all solution, so we’re offering two different versions for you to choose from: The Fundamentals Certification and the Professional Certification. What’s the difference? The Fundamentals covers the six three-hour flagship courses: The Fundamentals Overview, Modeling 1 and 2, Assembly, 2D Drawing, and Analysis. The Fundamentals certification is a good choice for Creo users who have completed the six fundamental courses and have a solid baseline knowledge of the tools and capabilities. In order to become certified, you must pass the Fundamentals exam which includes 30 randomly generated questions covering content in all six foundational courses. You’ll have two attempts to pass. In order to become certified in either program, you must receive a passing score of 80% or above.

The Professional certification is at a higher level and covers our entire LEARN Online catalogue. The catalogue includes more than 120 hours of content covering 36 courses with even more content currently being developed. The catalogue follows the classic Creo Design Process along with some additional areas. The exam is challenging and includes 80 questions that cover an extensive pool of knowledge and tools that you may not encounter in your daily work. If we’ve included it in any part of our training, it is fair game for the exam. This certification is truly for the most expert users in the industry. And it’s important to be transparent - earning the Professional certification is difficult by design. If you do successfully complete the exam, you are truly in unique company.
