Methods of Solving Problems

Ansys Associate Certification
ūüõą Important Notice: This certification is no longer available for purchase. Check out our latest upgraded version here.

Description 

If you have access through your organization, please click on the ‚ÄúEnroll‚ÄĚ button to begin. Once enrolled, you will be presented with two sections under the Content area. 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 credential. If you do not pass on your first attempt, you will have one additional attempt within the 30-days from the time you purchased the certification exam.

Details

 

Certification Exam

Completion of Certification Test 

To enroll in this certification, please visit the Market space. Once enrolled, you will see the four sections under Certification Content below. Please click on ‚ÄúTheory Quiz‚ÄĚ to start the exam. You will have 30 days to finish all the four sections and attempt to earn the certificate for the first time. 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 to pass within 30 days from when 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 3 simulation-based quizzes. You will have two attempts to pass within 30-days from your purchase.
  • The first¬†certification¬†test¬†is¬†1 hour (60 mins)¬†in¬†timed duration and is based on the lecture videos and¬†handouts.¬†This theory exam¬†tests your comprehension of the subject material.
  • There are 3 additional¬†tests,¬†each being 20 mins long,¬†that are to be taken after setting up, solving and post-processing Ansys simulation models.¬†These simulation exams test¬†your¬†basic understanding of Ansys Mechanical for setting up and interpreting the results of structural models.
  • The¬†certification¬†test¬†questions¬†include¬†single-answer and multiple-answer¬†questions.
  • The¬†test¬†questions¬†are based upon what you learned in the video¬†lectures and handouts, and the completion of assigned simulation examples.
  • 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 timed portion of the certification tests.
  • You may start¬†each¬†test¬†at your convenience¬†(within the¬†30 days¬†period),¬†but once a¬†test has started, you must complete it; there is no option to pause and come back later.
  • You will be provided with Ansys Workbench starting files and instructions for each of the simulation models.
  • A passing grade of 75% is required for each theory portion as well as the simulation portion (75% passing for all simulation models as a whole).

Simulation Test Requirements and Details 

  • For the simulation test, 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 Mechanical software if you already have access to one through school or work.
  • You¬†must¬†use¬†the latest¬†version of¬†Ansys¬†software.¬†The Workbench project files will not open in older releases of Ansys software, so¬†attempting to take the certification exam¬†with older releases will not be possible.
  • The simulation models use Ansys Mechanical found inside of Ansys¬†Workbench.
  • Before proceeding with the certification, you should¬†confirm that you can set up,¬†solve¬†and post-process¬†any¬†model inside Ansys Mechanical, hence confirming¬†your¬†ability to run the software.
  • Starting the certification¬†exam¬†without access to Ansys¬†Mechanical¬†software¬†will result in¬†a¬†failed certification¬†exam.
  • As a guide, the¬†actual¬†setup and solving of¬†the¬†simulation¬†exercise¬†should¬†not take longer than 2 hours¬†per simulation, but you have 30 days to complete this along with the exam itself.
If you do not pass the certification test, you will be permitted to retry one additional time (i.e., 2 attempts in total) within 30 days from when you purchased the certification exam.
