Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 17, 2009
Pearson and the Association of Professionals in Business Management (APBM) have developed comprehensive online learning solutions for APBM's management certifications, offering exam candidates time-efficient and cost-effective study and training opportunities.
The non-profit APBM was formed in 2000 to establish management as a profession, with certifications, continuing education, a code of ethics, and best practices research. Its two flagship certifications are the Certified Associate Business Manager (CABM), for individuals in entry-level positions who want to transition to management, and the Certified Business Manager (CBM), for mid-level and senior-level managers who must demonstrate proficiency in all functional areas of management in order to advance in their careers.
Through the CABM/CBM Online Learning Systems, powered by the MyPearsoneBook platform, exam candidates can access, bookmark, highlight, annotate and search all review materials online, including eBooks, podcasts, lecture notes, and videos. Extensive self-assessment tools, including interactive flash cards, comprehensive pre- and post-tests, and unlimited quizzes, enable students to select and focus on their personalized learning needs.
"We were able to provide the expertise required to handle large-scale instructional design, combined with the ability to incorporate that design to fit the unique needs of the corporate training field," said Don Kilburn, CEO, Pearson Learning Solutions. "This partnership will present many additional opportunities in the corporate and educational marketplaces to work closely with APBM as it continues to grow."
"Pearson Learning Solutions alone has the range of content and global reach to take our exam candidates from the day they register to they day they earn their credentials," said Devi Vallabhaneni, President/CEO, APBM. "Partnering with Pearson has enabled us to reach more people across more levels, industries, and countries than ever before. The CABM/CBM Online Learning Systems are beyond our expectations."
