As I do on the first blogging day of each month, I will now share the countries who have seen their first SPSM’s certified in the previous month. Despite the holiday season, in December, three countries joined the scores of other nations that have SPSM-certified professionals: Cameroon, the Czech Republic, and Norway.

The end of 2008 corresponded with an important industry deadline that will likely serve to accelerate the global spread of the SPSM® Certification. Come back on Monday (Jan. 5, 2009) for more coverage of this important shift.
