Advanced Purchasing Workshops

We are excited to announce a new line of Advance Purchasing Workshops! These courses are offered in collaboration with Western Michigan University's Center for Integrated Supply Management program. Classes will be taught in the Indianapolis area year-round and are normally one-day, in-person courses. Course examples include: Cost Improvement Techniques, Negotiation Strategies and Tactics, Legal Issues, and more!

Our Purchasing Workshops focus on developing a purchasing professional or organization at the highest level. Each course provides participants with best-practice rules, tools and processes to increase functional performance directly applied to the participant's industry and company. 

The full curriculum consists of six workshops. Members and guests can choose to take a single class, multiple classes, or the full curriculum. Completion of all six workshops (in any order) leads to an Advanced Purchasing Certificate from WMU's Center for Integrated Supply Management.
