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

Launch of a New Career Training Program

New Career Training Program

Title:  Customs Broker 

This program will prepare students to take and pass the Customs Broker License Examination. Students will learn how to read and utilize the numerous reference materials, classify commodities to determine duties, learn compliance and more. Upon passing the exam, students can then apply for their Customs Brokers License through U.S. Customs and Border Protection.  If they are accepted and become a Licensed Customs Broker, they will play a pivotal role in the U.S. trade community.

Program Code: GES753

Hours: 100

Cost: $1595

Program SRP: $1895

Availability: Immediately

Why should you market this program?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the transportation and material moving occupations group is projected to grow 5 percent from 2014 to 2024, adding 466,800 new jobs. An increased demand for shipping raw materials and finished products over highways, rail lines, and waterways should contribute to employment growth.

Why are we adding this program to the catalog?

We are adding this program because we do not have a lot of programs related to the transportation industry. Freight Broker is one of the most popular programs in the ed2go catalog and so we want to introduce more programs specifically related to the transportation industry.

Why would a student take this program?

This career only requires a high school diploma and passing an exam to become a licensed customs broker which according to Payscale.com has a median salary of $51,915. Students looking to work in the logistics, freight forwarding, importing, supply chain fields in the United States should consider enrolling in this program.


What Partners Need To Do

New Programs: Partners only need to make catalog updates for new Career Training Programs in your Online Administration Center (OAC) if:

  • Your site is set up for ed2go to automatically add new courses/programs to your catalog, AND you do not want to offer the new program, or need to change your retail pricing.
  • Your site is NOT set up for ed2go to automatically add new courses/programs to your catalog, AND you want to add new courses/programs to your catalog.

For assistance with updating your catalog, read this article

Otherwise, no further action is needed on your end in the OAC.

Content or Hours Update: No further action is needed on your end in the OAC. Your catalog already reflects this change.

 

 

Please contact your Account Manager if you have any questions about the new program.
