What does the course number codes mean (examples: PM9002x, SKILLS103x)?

The edX course numbers are "invented" for RIT and edX reference purposes.

Using the example of PM9002x, "PM" refers to Project Management (the subject). The "9000" series designates to us that the course is an advanced level course (in comparison to a 100-level course, which is introductory). Anything 500 and above is considered advanced level. The "2" is the number of the course in the series (i.e. PM9003x is the third course in the series). The x is to designate it as an edX course (not an RIT main course).

Using the example of SKILLS103x, "SKILLS" refers to subject of Soft Skills. The "100" series designates to us that the course is an introductory level course (in comparison to a 500-level or 9000-level course, which is advanced). The "3" is the number of the course in the series (i.e. SKILLS101x is the first course in the series). The x is to designate it as an edX course (not an RIT main course).
