CollegeBuys and NIGP (The Institute for Public Procurement) are thrilled to partner in order to offer access to several professional development opportunities that are available at no-cost or special pricing to our California community colleges procurement colleagues.
CollegeBuys purchased a special two-year access for our California community colleges procurement colleagues as part of a dedicated effort to support and advance professional development within the purchasing community. Our California community colleges procurement colleagues can register for two different certificates – Planning & Analysis Certificate and Sourcing & Contracting Certificate – which were designed for public procurement professionals with up to five year’s experience. Upon completion, participants receive a digital badge for their accomplishment. This is an amazing opportunity since the courses are on-demand – self-paced and accessible at any time of day.
CollegeBuys recently sent out an invitation to our California community college colleagues but if anyone is still interested in taking advantage of the certificate courses, please contact CollegeBuys’ Concierge (firstname.lastname@example.org) for help getting registered for free!
Another great option available to our California community colleges purchasing professionals is a 20% discount on NIGP live virtual instructor-led courses presented by expert procurement practitioners. This is a perfect opportunity to interact and ask questions during the progress of the course. The complete list of discounted course options and descriptions can be found here.
