PPS Launches Online Pricing Training and Certification Program, Announces 2009 Spring CPP Graduates

News from the Professional Pricing Society:

The Professional Pricing Society announces Online Pricing Training and Online Certified Pricing Professional course delivery for increased access, flexibility and cost-effectiveness

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 6, 2009 -- The Professional Pricing Society (PPS), the world's only professional society dedicated to pricing education and training, has expanded their courses and Certified Pricing Professional (CPP) designation program to an online delivery platform. Through this new delivery method, pricers all over the world will be able to get pricing training and achieve professional pricing certification at their own pace and from any location. The CPP designation is the industry recognized standard for advanced pricing knowledge in the business community.

Until recently, pricers could only attain their pricing training and CPP designation by attending sessions at live PPS events. However, in this challenging economy, PPS identified the need to expand options available to pricers for overcoming tightened travel and training budgets and for pursuing career advancement through continuing education. With the online program, CPP students can access and complete courses in any order, communicate with course instructors via email, participate in review sessions via teleconference, and complete their post-workshop exams online.

PPS also announced their Spring 2009 CPP graduating class, adding seven pricers to the elite group of CPP designees. Graduates earned their designation by successfully earning six CPP credits in PPS approved workshops and passing a four-hour certification exam. The newest class of CPP designees brings the total number of pricing professionals certified through the program to sixty three.

The 2009 Certified Pricing Professional Graduates are:

* Tim Rowlands, President, Edgeworth, Inc.
* Kristy Lingerfelt, Global Pricing Manager PCIBO, Eastman
* Kyle O'Connor, Pricing Analyst, Open Text
* Don Thomas, Director Global Pricing, Baker Petrolite
* Stan Cherry, Director of Pricing, Stock Building Supply
* Colby Imbrie, Pricing Project Manager, Pricing Consultant
