Western Washington Educational Training Programs
We are dedicated to the education of our chapter members. We offer a minimum of 8 hours of free training each program year (September - May). For the 2020-2021 program year, 14 hours of free training were offered.
For each of the past two program years, we dedicated 8 hours of education towards preparation for the CPSM and CPSD exams. At the beginning of these education series, we educate members about the benefits of being certified. We also provide practical information such as what to expect during the testing process and tips for studying.
At this time, only virtual programs are being held. Live programs will resume when local restrictions are loosened. ISM-Western Washington will maintain its virtual education programs for those who are not able to attend live events.
