What is COE Certification?

COE’s new certification program provides users, vendors, consultants and students with a globally valuable index for measuring and promoting their knowledge and skills within the PLM ecosystem. COE’s certification program provides a hands-on standard measure of DS PLM product knowledge and enables participants to assess their skills against market norms.

The certification program also offers valuable feedback on training programs by providing a quantitative before-and-after measurement of trainees' acquired skills.

COE’s certification is only offered at COE’s Annual PLM Conference.  Registered attendees can take the test at a discounted price of $99.  There will be an onsite rate of $149 for those who are only participating in the certification and not attending the Conference.
