No-cost Certification for FIRST Robotics participants

By Jennifer Bradford

FIRST Robotics competitors can receive special recognition for their knowledge and proficiency with NX™ and Solid Edge™ software with new certifications at no cost.

FIRST inspires young people to become science and technology leaders and innovators through engaging, real-world engineering challenges. Participation in FIRST is proven to encourage students to pursue education and careers in STEM-related fields.

We’re excited to partner with FIRST Robotics for the 2020 competition to benefit tomorrow’s engineers today. In addition to software, funding, curriculum and mentoring, Siemens is now offering FIRST Robotics participants no-cost certifications in Solid Edge™ and NX™. Participants can get recognized as a Solid Edge Certified Professional and/or an NX Certified Academic for their proficiency and knowledge of Solid Edge™ or NX™.

Certification is achieved through an online exam that tests the skills and knowledge of professionals and students who are experienced users of Solid Edge™ or NX™ software. Certification enhances the competitive edge and reputation of both users and organizations, and provides an industry recognized credential that both professionals and students can use to enhance their careers.

There are three levels of Solid Edge Certification and the exams are available in English, Chinese and Spanish. There is currently one certification for NX that is suitable for both students and faculty.
