ASI Awards MASI Certificate to Bill Haas

Ad specialty pro earns the industry’s most prestigious education award

 

TREVOSE, PA – September 23,2014 – The Advertising Specialty Institute has awarded Bill Haas with a Master of Advertising Specialty Information (MASI) certification – the industry equivalent of a master’s degree.

MASI holders are recognized as the true industry experts who’ve cultivated profitable and collaborative relationships with distributors, suppliers and decorators. This designation is a testament to their contributions to the advertising specialty industry.

To date, more than 550 graduates of the Advertising Specialty Institute Certification Program have received their certifications.

“We are so proud of the graduates of the Advertising Specialty Institute Certification Program,” said ASI President and Chief Executive Officer Timothy M. Andrews. “We launched this program to provide members with the skills they need to out-think, out-perform and out-service the competition. We couldn’t be happier so many members are seizing the opportunity to set themselves apart through quality education.”

To date, over 22,500 industry professionals have registered for free classes needed to obtain an ASI certification. In 2010 alone, 4,600 distributors took more than 16,000 live education courses at ASI trade shows, making ASI the largest educator in the $17 billion ad specialty industry. Each year, ASI commits $1.3 million to educate its members.

The Advertising Specialty Institute Certification Program is the industry’s only free certification program, created on a user-friendly digital platform. All courses are tracked automatically via a digital campus, so participants can easily access their transcripts and remaining course requirements.

Both live and online ASI Education courses qualify for credit. Candidates must complete certification within three years of beginning the program. Following defined guidelines, courses taken at a past ASI Show, on the ASI Education Online Learning Center, or completed at major industry events, such as the PPAI Expo or regional association conferences, are eligible for transfer.
