Sample Decision Maker Convincing Templates

Template 1 - Use this if you are asking for CIPP

Email Subject: finally a training program that will improve my skills

Hello/Dear {Decision Maker},

I've been searching online to find a worthwhile training program to improve my procurement skills to become a professional buyer.

Finally after careful research and diligence I found Certified International Procurement Professional (CIPP) online training. I'm kindly requesting approval to enrol in this program.

This program is offered by Purchasing & Procurement Center, which is a recognized center for practical & real-life procurement training & certification. The official brochure for CIPP is at the link below

http://ppc-inc.com/docs/booklet/cipp-ciapp-certification.pdf

At page 6 is the registration form. Once approved I can also pay online and claim back from the company.

Here are 3 reason why I believe CIPP is a suitable program for me:

First, CIPP is based on the latest and most advanced learning methodologies including Scenario-Based E-Learning, Online Simulations, PDF Summaries, Application Based Tasks, Short Quizes and Assessments.

These learning tools guarantee a learning effect matching that of good classroom training. Unique game changer in the market for procurement online training. They explain in more details at the link below, where they show how this is different from other programs.

Second, there are no hidden fees (like registration/admin fees, books etc) but all is included in one price of USD $2,195 for unlimited access for 12 months. 

Third CIPP Overall includes 65 Modules with 63 Hours online learning courses that help build strong skills on strategic sourcing & Negotiations, without forgetting other procurement skills like cost & contract management, legal & finance aspects for procurement, as well as supplier relations and operational procurement. 

Most Important - I found out that this training is focused on what matters most – the job at hand. I will have unlimited access to the entire course library. If there is something I need to learn, I can find a course or lesson that teaches it and use the new knowledge on the very same day.

This training is also cloud-based, so there is nothing to download or install. I can work this around my current work schedule and can do this at my desk. All I need is a headset and 10 to 15 minutes a day to get started.

Consider the alternatives:

1) pay extra money so I can attend several training workshops. If I were to attend class trainings for all these topics it would take few weeks and thousands more.

2) hire a consultant or trainer for substantially more money

3) peer-to-peer training (assuming we can find a resource), rearranging two separate schedules and many hours of lost productivity to the company.

I am confident that this training is going to help me become more efficient and productive at my job. Please consider purchasing this subscription for me at USD $2195, 1 year unlimited access 24/7 (all-in, no additional fees).

I would appreciate your quick response on this so that I can get started right-away.

Thank you,
