One of the headlines that caught my eye today when I picked up my Pittsburgh Post-Gazette today was “Look out below: A dollar’s a dollar in Canada.” This article highlighted how the US dollar has weakened vis-a-vis the Canadian dollar over the past few months and, now, the exchange rate is 1 US dollar = 1 Canadian dollar.
This got me interested. Our friends north of the border may be able to earn their SPSM Certifications cheaper than ever!
You see, if a Canadian enrolled in the SPSM Certification Program on February 9, they would have had to pay 1355.82 Canadian dollars to fund the equivalent of the SPSM Certification Program’s $1149 (US) price tag. Today, the cost to enroll is just 1149 Canadian dollars – a difference of over 200 Canadian dollars!
One of my team members just checked the futures prices for the US-Canadian dollar and it seems like this may be “rock bottom” so now just might be the best time for Canadian purchasing professionals to get the career-building benefits of the SPSM Certification at a more affordable price than ever!
