I’ve written before that during strenuous economic times, many people choose (wisely) to upgrade their skills and expertise through LMS online courses.
Supply Knowledge (SK) is one online system that may suit your needs. SK provides sourcing, procurement and supply management professionals with relevant and recent information and tools.
SK’s tools and programs are practical, easy to find, and designed by practitioners.
On Supply Knowledge’s website there is a quote from Barack Obama on February 24: “I ask every American to commit to at least one year or more of higher education or career training. This can be community college or a four-year school, vocational training or an apprenticeship. But whatever the training may be, every American will need to get more than a high school diploma.”
With this call to higher education in mind, Supply Knowledge sets out to provide certification programs and LMS online courses at a low price. The courses are self-paced and self-directed, providing flexibility and convenience to learners with busy schedules.
SK offers dynamic and up-to-date programs in Strategic Sourcing Management, as well as the CPSM (Certified Professional in Supply Management) Exam Preparation using ISM’s training material.
Now SK’s online CPSM Bridge Exam Preparation is available through Coggno’s marketplace. If you are a procurement professional who already holds CPM credentials, the course will help you prepare to take an exam to become a Certified Professional in Supply Management (CPSM).
The certification course was developed by instructors who graduated from the Institute for Supply Management (ISM), and uses ISM-approved material.
The course includes an introductory section with information about the certification exam, and tips and hints for succeeding on the exam. Following this is a section for each of the three exam modules.
SK is one LMS online provider that understands a simple concept: that transferring knowledge from the short-term memory to long-term is a process easily facilitated.
One of the most effective ways to help your brain absorb course material is repetitive review. Think of it this way: though you may park your car in hundreds of places throughout your lifetime, you probably remember easily enough where it is each time you leave it. And you just as easily forget where it was parked after you no longer need to find it there.
However, if one day you parked your car in a random place in the parking lot, and then walked by it few times throughout the day, you might remember for days or even weeks where it was on that particular day.
This is a simple strategy for putting course content into your long term memory. When you learn something new, try to review the main points on the same day. Take notes on the LMS online material and keep them accessible.
Supply Knowledge is a prime example of an LMS course provider that practices repetitive review. Throughout the course the learner is asked to complete many quizzes and case studies to test his or her knowledge. Each module ends with a quiz which helps students remember all the material included in that section, and upon completing the course there is a final quiz to prompt further practice and preparation for the CPSM exam.
Another course offered by SK and available on Coggno’s website is Market Research for Sourcing and Procurement. The course teaches learners how to conduct market research, “to identify qualified (or qualifiable) suppliers or contractors that can meet your organization’s requirements.”
The course a thorough yet concise overview about the ins and outs of market research, in a robust and effective online format. Enter Coggno’s marketplace and discover LMS online personal development courses for polishing your professional skills today.
