Are the SolidWorks certifications worth buying?

Hello, I'm wondering if they are actually worth it?

I was thinking about only the CSWA?

    If you are paying out of your own pocket, I'd skip the CSWA and do the CSWP or CSWE.
    The CSWA is geared more at very basic entry level skills like one might have after completing a school course.
    Maybe you are a high school student? But even then, go for the CSWP exam, you'll be a step ahead of everyone else.

    You may be able to get a free exam as well. People with the SolidWorks subscription service get one or two exams a year. If your workplace has a subscription, see about using one of the "free exams".
    If you find a local SW User Group, they can often give away a few free courses to people who attend the meetings.
