This week, SPOCE announce even more enhanced benefits to their training package, making the first-class training and support service they offer, even better. SPOCE believes that there is no other training package like this on the market.
Says MD Paul Bradley:
“SPOCE has been delivering world class training courses for 25 years now and we know that we have the highest standards with regard to this. We have always had quality assurances in the past, such as our ‘Safe-hands’ exam re-sit guarantee (now Exam re-sit 'SafetyNet'). This benefit offered a free re-sit to delegates so that they could be confident when walking into their exam that they would receive further support should they need it. We are very proud of our reputation as a high-quality training provider and we always say that when we train our delegates we are not just teaching them to pass exams but to understand and be able to implement what we train fully in the workplace. These additional benefits are just our way of making sure that our courses are accessible to all and that we have covered everybody's needs.”
What’s it all about…?
SPOCE have revisited their excellent training and service package and quite frankly, made the best even better. Now when delegates are looking for a course to purchase, they have a whole suite of additional benefits that they can request at no additional cost to them.
Where else can you get all this?
1. 0% monthly payment plans: Learn now, pay over 3-12 months (classroom and ONLIVE Virtual Classroom courses)
Says Paul Bradley Managing Director of SPOCE:
“We wanted to make the best accessible to everyone, now, when they need it. The right accreditation on your CV can be career changing but not everyone has the budget to spend straight away to fulfil their training ambitions. Especially in today’s financial climate. We have heard time again about our delegates coming back to us after they have paid bottom dollar for substandard training, overpacked classrooms, poor facilities and courses being constantly cancelled. We understand that ‘value’ isn’t always about cheap. Now if people want first class training through SPOCE, they can spread their payments.
There is absolutely NO interest to be paid when monthly payment plans are put in place and delegates can pick a plan that suits their budget.”
2. 24/7 tutorial benefit
SPOCE is not just there for you for the duration of your course! When you buy an ONLIVE Virtual Classroom or classroom course from SPOCE, you can request 6 months additional e-Learning or ONLIVE Virtual Classroom access from the start date.
What does this mean? Essentially, the support doesn’t end when you sit your initial course. So, if you do want to brush up on more sessions and modules before you take your exam, or you just want the comfort of knowing that you have access to further training if you need to re-sit your exam, then you have it.
3. Exam re-sit ‘SafetyNet’
This brings us nicely to our next benefit. Exam re-sit ‘SafetyNet’ offers a free re-sit for delegates paying the full advertised price for their course. It has always been here but has previously been called the ‘Safe-hands guarantee.’ We have always offered this benefit for any fully priced course because we believe that our pass rates are ‘excellent’ and you probably won’t need it. Still, it is always a comfort to know that ‘Just in case….’
4. FREE training – Yes that’s correct!
Buy any course with exam and manual and get the ‘free training’ option if you buy again within 6 months of your start date. You will only need to pay for your exam(s) and manual.
This option is available for any online e-Learning course or ONLIVE virtual classroom course.
Training consultant Ross Ayley says: “
People often get the training bug then they do a course with us .They enjoy it and are on a real high when they get their pass marks. We are just simply making this more accessible and affordable for people. The other day I had a candidate that was unsure about whether to take his PRINCE2 Practitioner or his PRINCE2 Agile Practitioner. With this benefit he could do both just for the cost of an additional exam and manual. It’s a win-win situation.”
Continuing, says Paul Bradley:
“What delegates often don’t realise is that SPOCE already have a whole range of benefits that come as part of their standard training package anyway. They always have. We are on a mission here to change that. We have always advocated high quality training and service and have so many add-ons and assurances that delegates simply don’t know about. If delegates don’t know about them, they can’t use them.”
Did you know we already offer these?
Along with a free re-sit guarantee, SPOCE offer high-grade quality assurance. Only a ‘maximum’ of 16 delegates are allowed per class so classrooms are never over filled. Official manuals are provided with courses. Pre-course event preparation is sent to all delegates, so you are ready to hit the ground running on your first day. Exams are ‘always’ included in the price unless delegates have specifically chosen a ‘training only’ course. There are no hidden extras.
SPOCE is the founder member of ASPECT (Association for the Promotion of Excellence in Consultancy and Training). It is responsible for the charter that was introduced for its members, outlaying the minimum standards of quality for training organisations, which is still very much adhered to by its members today.
FREE APM Associate membership
Any delegate that sits their APM PMQ exam with SPOCE, whether they pass or fail, qualifies for FREE APM Associate Membership. This benefit is ‘only’ available with SPOCE. You will not get this anywhere else.
Qualifying CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and PDU (Professional Development Units)
All SPOCE courses and many free resources and activities, help delegates maintain their PDUs and CPDs. The Professional Development Unit (PDU) was established by PMI as the educational metric for project management educational activities. One PDU is earned for each contact hour spent in structured learning. CPDs are required from AXELOS for any delegates wishing to remain current in their Practitioner schemes without needing to retake their exam.
SPOCE is also registered with ELCAS and so is able to include Enhanced Learning Credits into all courses. This can save (ex) service personnel an average of ¾ of their course fee using this scheme through SPOCE.
