Instructor-Led Course Updates

Course Launches: Certified Quality Auditor and Certified Quality Engineer

Expand your Advanced Career Training program with two new course offerings in quality control, a growing field within the manufacturing and engineering industries. Our Certified Quality Auditor and Certified Quality Engineer courses provide comprehensive training for an internationally-recognized certification from the American Society for Quality (ASQ).

Certified Quality Auditor

Manufacturing businesses are required to comply with regulation and a quality auditor ensures they meet a standard of excellence. An ASQ Certified Quality Auditor is an expert in auditing, knowledgeable in both industry standards and auditing techniques like examining, evaluating, and documenting. Gaining ASQ certification is a promising way to jumpstart a career in this in-demand field or earn up to twelve percent more as an established quality auditor.

Certified Quality Auditor | Course Code: GES2014 | Suggested Retail Price: $1,695

This course teaches the standards of quality auditing, such as the steps involved in planning and successfully executing an audit. Students will also learn how to utilize quality tools and techniques such as Pareto charts, Six Sigma, and plan-do-check-act (PDCA), as well as methods for estimating, mitigating, and controlling risk, including FMEA, HACCP, and CTQ.

Certified Quality Engineer

Quality control plays a vital role in the manufacturing industry, as product, materials, mechanics, and electrical systems need to be monitored and inspected to ensure it meets regulatory standards. Certified Quality Engineers are leaders in the quality control field, equipped with critical skills like quality management system (QMS) development, designing and testing process controls, and fluency in risk management.

Certified Quality Engineer | Course Code: GES2015 | Suggested Retail Price: $1,695

This course prepares students for the American Society for Quality certification test by teaching the fundamentals of quality engineering from the Certified Quality Engineer (CQE) Book of Knowledge. Students will learn to develop and implement quality control systems, administer management information systems, and procedures for testing and inspection. Additionally, this course covers quality cost concepts, metrology, and statistical methods of diagnosis and correction. Upon completion, ASQ certified quality engineers will be well-versed in improvement processes, ranging from lean and corrective action to kaizen and Six Sigma.

IMPORTANT: Pricing Adjustments and Platform Enhancement

ed2go has officially upgraded and enhanced our courses and platform to transform the way we deliver content, engage learners and drive successful student outcomes. As our valued partner, you and your students will have immediate access to some of these new features and functionality.

Our new platform already offers key enhancements like; responsive design to enable learning on smart devices, improved look and feel for better user experience, easier course navigation, and more. Additional updates will be made in the coming months. 

We continue to invest heavily in the development of the platform across all ed2go offerings, and we will be adjusting our pricing to more accurately reflect the value students receive from advancing their education through our partner schools with these added enhancements.

Effective February 1, 2018, your wholesale price on many of our Instructor-Led Courses will be increased from $65 to $75, and the new suggested retail price will be raised from $100 to $115.  The net effect of the pricing change will increase your revenue by $5 per enrollment.  In addition to helping deliver increased revenues, this price change will also help drive continued investment in our products and platforms to further benefit you and your students.

A complete updated price list can be found here newpricelist.com. Please refer to your email for instructions on how to access the confidential page.

Some additional exciting improvements coming soon include:

  • Top Secret Tool for Employability: We are doing our best to address the skills gap that prevents many capable workers from getting jobs and many in-need employers from getting skilled applicants. Currently under development (but not ready for announcement) is a game-changing tool to help close that gap and get students prepared to land the jobs they want.

The ed2go team takes great pride in putting our students and partners first.  Our extensive research has shown that consumers and employers are willing to pay more for higher-quality professional development courses. This information provided some necessary insight, which helped us create the new pricing strategy.  Don’t worry, we understand some students are learning for personal growth or entertainment and are more price sensitive, so we will be holding prices at their current levels for these types of courses.

At ed2go, we do not take for granted the value of our relationship with you, our partner.  We appreciate the investment you have made in us and the communities you serve! In return, we want to keep investing in you and your students.

To learn more about the Talent Triangle click here.


What you need to do

We request that you, our partner, take immediate action to remain in compliance with PMI guidelines:

  • Write out all PMI initializations in full the first time they appear on each page in your course materials and include a registration mark on the term’s first occurence.
    • In all course titles, spell out PMP credential in full: “Project Management Professional (PMP)®”
    • On the same page, spell out, “A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide)”
  • Remove the PMI R.E.P. logo and the R.E.P. number from any of your marketing materials.
  • Do not issue student certificates of completion with the PMI R.E.P. logo nor the R.E.P. number.

This is important because non-R.E.P. (partners) can license courseware containing PMI Intellectual Property from an existing R.E.P. (ed2go) with a current Derivative Works License on file with the PMI Legal Department. However, the non-R.E.P. (partners) cannot advertise/promote that a particular course offered has been approved, accredited, etc. by an existing (ed2go) or former PMI R.E.P. on their webiste.

One New Course Bundle

New Course Bundle

Title: Nonprofit Management and Grant Writing Suite

Wholesale Price: $227

Suggested Retail Price: $349

Courses Included: 

Introduction to Nonprofit Management

Develop the skills and strategies you need to become an integral part of one of America’s fastest growing service sectors. In this course, a seasoned veteran in the nonprofit management field will show you how to transform your good intentions into a professional plan of action. You’ll understand the unique characteristics of nonprofit organizations while mastering the core knowledge necessary to become an effective leader in the nonprofit arena.

Marketing Your Nonprofit

Discover marketing practices that will help you further the ideals and goals of your nonprofit. In the face of stiff competition, an increase in the number of worthwhile causes, new regulations, more oversight, and fewer funding opportunities, you need to work smarter–not longer. This course, packed with practical strategies that you can put to immediate use, will help you compete more effectively for members, media attention, donors, clients, and volunteers.

Writing Effective Grant Proposals

Learn to prepare grant proposals that get solid results for your favorite organization or charity. Over $200 billion annually is available for worthy causes and most people don’t know how to prepare the application that will deliver needed funding. Avoid the mistakes that get applications for wonderful projects tossed into the wastebasket! Learn how to write professional proposals that actually succeed.

Advanced Grant Proposal Writing

Do you know the best way to present information in a grant proposal? In this course, an experienced grantwriter will show you how to research and write winning proposals that get funded. Learn what to do–and, more importantly what not to do–on every part of your proposal. Gain a full understanding of the criteria funders use to determine whether your grant proposal gets funded or rejected. You’ll become expert at ferreting out corporate, foundation, and government grantmakers, and you’ll know how to tailor your responses to information found in the peer review criteria. You’ll also discover a number of significant finishing touches that can give your project the edge over others. You’ll know the best type of paper to use, which buzzwords to include, which fonts work best, and which types of graphics and formatting techniques will make your proposal more competitive.

Availability: March 7, 2017
