Virginia Association of Governmental Purchasing


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.
