How to identify the right training institute?

As an ambitious supply chain professional, before enrolling in your certification from any training institute, make sure to verify the authenticity of the institute. Not quite sure how to check that? Here’s your guide to that:
  • Check number of affiliated institutes - Look into the number of institutes associated with the awarding body. A wide network of training providers typically reflects credibility and industry trust.
  • LinkedIn Alumni Presence – Do a thorough check on LinkedIn to see how many professionals have completed programs from these awarding bodies. A strong alumni presence suggests the certifications are respected and valued in the job market.
  • Verify institute name on awarding body’s website - ensure that the institute offering the certification name appears on the awarding body’s official website as an approved training provider. Transparent partnerships are a sign of legitimate certification.
  • Communication and Transparency - When contacting awarding bodies for details, prompt and clear communication is a key indicator of their professionalism. Poor communication or hesitancy to provide the right information could be warning signs.
  As rightly said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” Make sure you check all the above-listed factors before registering for your certification.
