Additionally, the program provides candidates with intensive and extensive exposure to a team of CIMdata experts. Upon successful completion of the program, each participant receives a CIMdata PLM Certificate and thereby becomes a member of CIMdata’s global PLM Leadership community.

“As a region, Scandinavia has always had a very robust and diverse industrial base. Over the past several years, PLM has been recognized throughout many industrial sectors as a key strategic business initiative to sustain industrial robustness and provide a competitive advantage. Given this recognition, we believe that now is the right moment to bring our CIMdata PLM Certificate Program to the region.” said Mr. Peter Bilello, CIMdata’s Vice President. The program will be hosted by CIMdata’s newest PLM Leadership Alliance Member, Summit Systems.

PLM Certificate Program participants can register online for either the 3-day or complete 5-day program.
