For over 30 years, CIMdata has been working in the Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) industry. Our consulting services and research expertise are known around the world for their best-practice-based content. CIMdata has leveraged its knowledge and experience to create the CIMdata Public PLM Certificate Program — the PLM industry’s most comprehensive non-biased education and training offering for today’s PLM professionals.
To earn the CIMdata PLM Certificate of Leadership, participants must successfully complete all nine sessions in one of two ways:
CIMdata’s Public PLM Certificate Programs are available to industrial companies who are considering or implementing PLM, PLM solution and service providers, and PLM systems integrators. Private PLM Certificate Programs and advanced courses are also available; for more information contact CIMdata. Members of CIMdata's Knowledge Councils and PLM Community may attend these programs at a reduced price.
CIMdata’s Public PLM Certificate Program leverages CIMdata’s internationally recognized five-day PLM Certificate Program for Industrial Organizations, PLM Solution and Service Providers, and Systems Integrators. This assessment-based certificate program satisfies the main PLM education requirements of medium and large enterprises. The program also satisfies the main requirements of PLM solution and service providers, and Systems Integrators.
The Public PLM Certificate Program is delivered through a series of education and training sessions. All sessions are three-and-a-half hours long. The intent is to tailor the delivery of the program’s content to address any specific issues impacting the attendees.
The program is delivered over five consecutive business days. Each day runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with one mid-morning break, a lunch break, and one mid-afternoon break.
The certificate program includes a combination of lectures, industry case studies, individual and group exercises, and tests.
PLM Certificate Program attendees who successfully complete the program receive a Certificate of PLM Leadership from CIMdata.
