NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Project Management certifications have never been more popular and it seems Vision Training Systems is one of the main industry players capitalizing on this trend. Project Management positions have seen a double digit percentage increase in demand, motivating IT professionals to jump on the trend and start gaining these types of certifications. There is usually one big problem they encounter though; Certification training is very expensive. Sometimes insanely expensive. Most quality eLearning courses are costing around $1000 with some providers being almost double that. For the average IT professional, that's just not realistic. The reason these courses are so expensive is due to what goes into them. Quality instructor led lectures, lab, test simulations, support, etc. For the few that can afford to spend $1000, the return on investments is definitely there but the majority of IT pros are left without an option allowing them to obtain these certifications. That dilemma is what Vision Training Systems has capitalized on. Last year, Vision offered their PMP Certification Training Bundle for only $59 through Living Social, generating over $1,000,000.00 in sales in under a month. Needless to say, the market spoke and spoke clearly. People need this type of training but most importantly they need it at a reasonable cost.
For those that aren't familiar with Living Social, they are a leading daily deal provider with millions of customers worldwide. This is really what allows companies like Vision to offer large discounts. Volume drives cost reduction and then companies can pass on the savings. This PMP course promotion is a pretty good example of that. Vision normally charges $1295 for their course. On Living Social you can purchase it for $59.99. Some people would instantly question why any company would offer such a massive discount but Vision Training System's Director of Operations, Shane Vernoy, made their intentions very clear. He commented saying, "For us, this is not about making one sale to a customer. This is about introducing our courses to millions of students and building long term relationships with them. Our goal is to earn a student's business on this first purchase by offering it at an extremely low price and then once they are successful with the course, earning their business on future training courses they wish to take. We feel that once a customer experiences our product and customer service, they will not need to look elsewhere for future courses."
This concept does make a lot of sense in the IT education market. Information Technology changes constantly and with change comes new certifications, leaving IT pros with little option but to constantly be educating themselves on new technology. Vision Training Systems looks to be ahead of the curve on this concept and here's to hoping they continue to offer these types of deals on their courses.
