Management and Strategy Institute Renews and Expands CPD Accreditation

Downingtown, PA – 09/21/2017 – The Management and Strategy Institute (MSI) is excited to announce that they have renewed their CPD Accreditation and expanded the number of accredited courses to 20.  Previously MSI had 5 certification programs accredited through the CPD, however they decided to expand the number of programs to 20 to bring additional value to their members.  “We’re very excited to be expanding the number of certifications covered under the CPD” stated Michael DiLeo, President of the Institute.  “Many of our certifications are in high demand internationally.  MSI has members from countries all over the world such as the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, France, and Ireland.  Certifications like our Certified Continuous Improvement Manager, which covers multiple process improvement methodologies like Lean and Six Sigma are particularly popular.  The CPD accreditation allows MSI to issue CPD credits for our programs.  These credits can be used in the US and internationally as continuing education credits towards other certifications our members may have.  They also help enhance the value of the certifications themselves, since employers know that these programs have been reviewed by an independent 3rd party accrediting body.”

The certifications that MSI has added to the CPD accreditation are list below.  The Management and Strategy Institute selected the certifications that are most in demand throughout the US and in other popular countries such as the UK.

Why is this accreditation valuable to US based certification holders?  Many of our members hold multiple certifications, often from multiple certification companies.  CPD credits are recognized by many certification bodies as proof of continuing education credits.  Often times these credits are needed to keep certifications from expiring every few years.  The CPD accreditation also shows external stakeholders such as private companies, educational institutes, and employers that your certification has been recognized by an independent, international accrediting body.  This accreditation is also valuable for members who may have international clients or work within an organization that has an international presence.

Why is this accreditation valuable to internationally based certification holders?  CPD credits are recognized by many organizations as the primary standard for continuing education.  These credits are used heavily in locations like the UK as proof of completion of a continuing education program.  If you get your certification from a US based company like the Management and Strategy Institute, the CPD accreditation helps members in your country see that the MSI certification meets international standards for quality.  The certification programs now covered by the CPD accreditation are:
