You may have heard that one of our Chapter Members, Colette Brown is teaching a procurement course at Southern Utah University. Here is some addition information about this course.
A great opportunity to expound your public procurement knowledge is available through our very own, Southern Utah University. “Essentials, Methods, & Management” is an online, asynchronous class, available to everyone which cover all aspects of purchasing in the public procurement arena.
This course is designed for those who work in purchasing wanting to strengthen their understanding of policies that govern how purchasing is done and when public funds may be utilized.
Those who work in private purchasing positions, or those looking to explore a career in purchasing, may also be interested in learning the essential information to be successful in this interesting career path.
Either way, it will also help provide education hours (48 for CPPB and 90 for NIGP-CPP) to extend an individual’s certification and/or meeting eligibility requirements.
Participants can Choose from two participation options (ranging from $399 - $749):
Procurement Essentials, Methods & Management - successful completion earns three Continuing Education Units (CEU).
Procurement Essentials, Methods & Management Fast Track - successful completion earns three credits that may transfer into associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs at Southern Utah University.
It is a nine-week course with reading assignments, quizzes, tests, discussions, and more to help apply the various concepts which help govern public procurement. The Spring semester is from February 12, 2024 through April 12, 2024 to help those preparing to take the NIGP-CPP or CPPB through UPPCC.
