PDMA Chapter Study Group Program
The PROVEN Way to Create a NPDP Prep Program – All at No Cost to the Chapter
We have been providing study group programs to PDMA groups for years. It is simply the best method available.
Given the economic conditions, companies may be reluctant to reimburse for NPDP training programs and participants do not want to travel to a highly-priced class.
Instead, use our resources to create your own self-study group. We will tell you how to do it and provide the resources you need.
The steps are simple and proven to be successful:
- Chapter leadership promotes PDMA’s New Product Development Professional (NPDP) certification and encourages members to participate in a study group.
- Participants register for the NPDP eCourse using a special link and webpage provided for the chapter.
- Participants interact through asynchronous collaborative tools and real-time webinars to hold each other accountable for reading the information.
- Participants take the NPDP exam and celebrate each other’s success!
Benefits for chapter participants: the accountability and peer learning provided by the study groups is the most successful format we have found.
Benefits for PDMA chapters: significantly increase the number of NPDPs participating in your chapter, your group’s impact on your community, and your ability to attract new participants. There is also an opportunity to share revenue with chapters depending on the number of participants in a study group.
