Next Level Purchasing launches their new SPSM Certification and Enhanced Results Program which, in addition to the basic SPSM Certification, which I have reviewed previously, includes additional certification components – namely a 30-minute implementation consultation by phone with the instructor, the “Supply Management in the Real World” e-book, and NLP’s new SPSM Multimedia Study & Implementation Guide which is a collection of 50+ audio and video clips – and an iPod preloaded with all of the multimedia material that the student gets to keep upon course completion.
The program is priced at $1,749 … only $600 more than the basic SPSM certification program. Considering an iPod will run you $300, it’s really only $300 more than the basic program – which is definitely worth it for many students. As a former university professor and professional trainer, I know first hand that multimedia can greatly enhance the learning experience and increase the rate of retention for many students, and thus think that it’s a great idea.
For more information on the new program, check out the NLP site. For more information on some of the standard courses, you can refer to my previous posts, linked herein.
