On Monday, we launched our new Lifetime Purchasing Skills Retention Package. Recognizing the need for purchasing professionals to access and utilize the tools and processes which they learn through Next Level Purchasing’s training not only today but into the future, this free package has been created and offered to all past, current and future students. No other purchasing training provider offers a lifetime skills retention program.

The Lifetime Purchasing Skills Retention Package enhances Next Level Purchasing’s mission of helping purchasing professionals have more rewarding careers. Students often learn some purchasing practices that are not required for their current day-to-day work duties, but may find these same practices are vital as they further their careers. When students do not have the opportunity to apply these processes, it is easy to forget what they’ve learned. The aim of the Lifetime Purchasing Skills Retention Package is to encourage a continual review of the course material a little at a time so that when purchasing challenges arise the student is prepared to handle them with confidence and be successful.

The three-pronged knowledge retention program from Next Level Purchasing is designed to provide students with several opportunities to review their course material after they have completed a Next Level Purchasing online course. Effective immediately, students who have completed an online course can access a four- to eight-page Quick Reference Guide for the course, giving them a review of key points on demand. Beginning in the first full week of January 2010, students will receive monthly emails that focus on important course learning objectives from the course. And, beginning in April 2010, students will have access to quarterly review webinars. These tools are provided for each individual online course that a student has completed and are included in the standard cost of the course, which has not changed with the addition of the Lifetime Purchasing Skills Retention Package.

Our goal is not just to provide training, but to give purchasing professionals what it takes to deliver measurable results in the workplace throughout their entire careers. The Lifetime Purchasing Skills Retention Package is designed to help companies continue to get value out of their training investment years, or even decades, after the actual training has concluded.
