The Elite AE award is the highest recognition an applications engineer can receive from SolidWorks. It is a series of 7 exams that must be completed in one calendar year. Some tests require to be taken every year to stay current. It also looks at your participation in the SOLIDWORKS community, participating in user groups and other similar events. This month I reached this goal. Computer Aided Technology now has four Elite AEs. Bob McGaughey, Brian Reel, Bryan Pawlak, and myself. Following is a list of the certifications I needed to get the award.
-Certified SOLIDWORKS Support Technician
-Certified Simulation Pro Support Technician
-Certified Flow Simulation Support Technician
-Certified Enterprise PDM administrator
-Certified SOLIDWORKS Composer Professional
-Certified Electrical Support Technician
-Certified SOLIDWORKS Expert.
Not only am I thrilled to have finished this goal, I am excited to receive my award at SOLIDWORKS World 2014 in San Diego.
