San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 1, 2010
The Association for Strategic Planning (ASP) (http://www.strategyplus.org) has designated the Haines Centre for Strategic Management® as one of only five Founding Qualified Charter Registered Educational Providers (REPs) for the Association for Strategic Planning’s Standards and Certification Program. It is the very first Certification, or degree, of its kind in the Strategic Planning World as there are no known degrees or majors in Strategic Planning in Academia—just several disconnected but useful Strategic Planning courses.
As a Founding REP, the Haines Centre provides many high-quality courses, materials and instructors related to the Association for Strategic Planning’s first ever set of Standards and a Body of Knowledge for the Field. All of the Centre’s courses will allow members to enhance their competitive edge through the Association for Strategic Planning’s research-based Body of Knowledge, which covers the 21st Century Requirements for every Strategic Planner. Members will learn from the Haines Centre’s Qualified Instructors and five ASP Certified Strategic Management Pioneers- each a successful practitioner with more than 20 years of experience in the Strategic Planning Field.
Members will earn Professional Development Units, Continuing Education Credits, well as University of San Diego course credits. The Centre’s educational offerings are ALL THE exam preparation needed for professionals to achieve the ASP Certifications as a Strategic Planning Professional (SPP) or as a Strategic Management Professional (SMP). ASP also has a designation as a Strategic Planning Apprentice (SPA) and the Haines Centre’s offerings fit for it as well.
