The education seminars available, through NIGP and VAGP, are meant to instill, inspire and challenge
procurement professionals on purchasing techniques, theory and best practices. Among these learning opportunities you will find quality training, convenience and
variety in scheduling, and practical course topics from which to choose. Each classroom experience brings
colleagues together in an informative, professional environment that encourages debate, discussion, dialogue,
and above all learning.
Taught by the Best in the industry
NIGP instructors possess a high level of professionalism and are
recognized and respected members of the procurement community.
Every NIGP instructor holds a current CPPO or CPPB designation and has
successfully completed the NIGP Train-the-Trainer program as well as
completed NIGP Student Training experiences that are pre-qualifications
for becoming an NIGP Certified Instructor. These talented instructors are
ambassadors of the profession as well as educational facilitators. NIGP
instructors bring their depth of real-world, practical purchasing
experience and industry knowledge to every NIGP course. Instructors
present the "body of knowledge" using an interactive, case-study-based
style, making the learning process immediately engaging and relevant.
