How is SPC 3.0 related to the COSE Strategic Planning Course?
SPC 3.0 is the same curriculum and format that was formerly provided as the COSE Strategic Planning Course. In the spring of 2018, COSE began a re-examination of it's educational offerings and elected to not offer the course going forward. The community of SPC supporters and sponsors which has developed over the past 38 years felt strongly that the course continue to be available. For the 2018-19 course year, we have partnered with WIRE-Net to deliver our outstanding Strategic Planning Experience.
