Testimonials

The Cost Management Certification Program taught me how to conduct knowledge-based negotiations to obtain cost transparency and move pricing towards optimal. I learned how to better understand manufacturing costs so I can evaluate supplier quotes, build cost models to analyze supplier quotes and estimate should be pricing on new programs, and break down the quote information so cost reduction opportunities can be determined and negotiated. This will allow me to respond quickly and accurately to sales and engineering cost inquiries allowing me to better serve my company and give them the best chance of earning new business that will allow them to remain profitable and enrich the lives of their employees and community as they have done for many years. I strongly recommend taking this course. – Marsha Peters, Purchasing Manager
