Certification: A program to certify that the users have the experience and qualified education to demonstrate their capabilities and excel in casting simulation projects.

Different levels of certification will be obtained according to the score. The certification is a MAGMASOFT® module-based program. Users can participate in the certification of multiple modules.

The certificate will be presented at the MAGMA User Group Meeting which will be held in December. This certification will also serve as a notification that the organization employs users who can effectively apply MAGMASOFT®.



According to the assessment score, the certification is divided into a bronze certificate, silver certificate, and gold certificate. Users with a score of 60-70 will obtain a bronze certificate. Users with a score of 70-90 will obtain a silver certificate and users with a score of more than 90 will receive a gold certificate.


  • Users with a valid maintenance agreement
  • Participated in three training/coaching sessions, including Operation Training, Process Coaching, and On-job Project Coaching
  • Minimum of 1 year of MAGMASOFT® usage
  • Recommendation by the responsible MAGMA engineers
  • Up to 3 participants per license per year

Certification contents

  • Display of actual project and simulation report
    • Project requirements: Must be based on a product in mass production with multiple simulation calculations available; Test results for comparison purposes need to be available.
    • Requirements for simulation report: the report should cover relevant modules. The project should have filling and solidification results. If your test includes MAGMAstress, the report should include stress results.
  • Q&A
    • MAGMA engineers will score based on the presentation of the project.
    • MAGMA engineers will score based on answers to required and optional questions.
    • The average of the final scores of each reviewer is the user's final score.
