Best Value Masterclass

Get started with Best Value in an interactive, compact, and efficient program

The Best Value Masterclass B+ training is a logical continuation of your Best Value Basics Course (B Certification). It deepens and extends your Best Value knowledge so that you can apply Best Value independently. A considerable part of the training includes the philosophy – the foundation of Best Value – which is necessary for successful application of the Best Value approach. The training is concluded with an exam that leads to an internationally accredited  B+ certificate.
