Advanced Purchasing Dynamics Cost Management Certification
In response to an overwhelming demand, APD has announced an on-line version of its Cost Management Certification Program.
The on-line program has all the same content as the traditional classroom version and is designed to be completed in four months. However, instead of face-to-face Group Sessions, content will be delivered in 4 modules each containing one live one-hour webinar, 4-5 on-demand video podcasts and additional exercises.
Here is how the program works. Each month all participants will complete a module by:
- Attending a live one-hour webinar. The live webinars are used to reinforce content and respond to any questions.
- Watching 4-5 video podcasts.
- Completing 2-3 exercises.
- Completing the certification exam for the materials.
