"An award-winning ADVANCE course has a high added value as it enables you to prepare for international recognition certifications, and in particular the APMI CPIM course has allowed me to get the best international practices that have enabled me to start my start-up project in Rolls-Royce, giving me professional advancement both from the point of view of responsibility and remuneration. This led me to enrol me in another SC Management course - the CSCP - to gain additional skills to apply according to international best practices."
