Additionally, the program provides candidates with intensive and extensive exposure to a team of CIMdata’s PLM experts. Upon completion of the program, each participant receives a CIMdata PLM Certificate and thereby becomes a member of CIMdata’s global PLM Leadership community. According to Mr. Peter Bilello, CIMdata’s President, “The response to this year’s announced classes has been stronger than originally anticipated. As a result, we have decided to formally announce the opening of the registration period for the Andover class early. It has been exciting to see the financial rebound of the PLM industry throughout 2010. Industry spending on PLM software is clearly up and so is the need for well trained PLM professionals.” PLM Certificate Program participants can register online for either the 3-day or complete 5-day program.
