Completion of Certification Test

To enroll in this certification, please visit the Market space. Once enrolled, you will see the two sections under Certification Content below. Please click on either of the sections to start the exam. You will have 30 days to finish both the sections. Upon completion of the certification exam with a passing score, you will be rewarded with access to a digital badge. If you do not pass, you will have one additional attempt within the 30-days from the time you purchased the certification exam. By proceeding further, you acknowledge that you have read and understand the guidelines mentioned above and understand that this will be counted as one of the two allowed attempts.

Format of the Certification Exam 

  • This certification exam consists of 1 theory-based quiz and 1 simulation-based quiz. You will have two attempts to pass within 30-days from your purchase.
  • The theory quiz is 1 hour (60 mins) in timed duration and is based on the lecture videos and handouts. This quiz tests your comprehension and understanding of the real viscous flows subject material.
  • The simulation-based quiz is 1 hour (60 mins) in timed duration. This quiz is designed to be taken after setting up, solving and post-processing a basic fluid flow simulation.
  • The certification exam questions will include both single-answer and multiple-answer questions.
  • You will have 30 days to complete the entire certification exam process, allowing for sufficient time to download, set up and solve the simulation models before starting the certification exam.
  • You may start each quiz at your convenience (within the 30-day period), but once started, you must complete it; there is no option to pause and start again later.
  • A passing grade of 75% is required for each of the theory and the simulation quizzes.

Simulation-based Quiz Requirements and Details

  • The simulation-based quiz tests your basic understanding of Ansys Fluent for setting up and interpreting results of some basic fluid flow simulations.
  • You will be provided with a starting mesh file and instructions for the simulation problem.
  • The simulation models have been designed to run within the limits of the free Ansys Student product, found here. (Be sure to install Ansys Student software, not Ansys Discovery Student software).  Alternatively, you may use a standard commercial or academic license of Ansys Fluent software if you already have access to one through school or work.
  • You must use the latest version of Ansys software. The files may not open in older releases of Ansys software, so attempting to setup and solve the simulation with older releases might not be possible.
  • Before proceeding with the certification exam, you should confirm that you can set up, solve and post-process any model inside Ansys Fluent, hence confirming your ability to run the software.
  • Starting the simulation-based quiz without access to Ansys Fluent software will result in a failed certification exam.
  • As a guide, the actual setup and solving of the simulation should not take longer than 2 hours per simulation, but you have 30 days to complete this along with the certification exam itself.
If you do not pass the certification exam, you will be permitted to retry one additional time (i.e., 2 attempts in total) within 30 days from the time you purchased the certification exam.
