Whether you are a new or seasoned Procurement & Purchasing Manager there are 3 options to build your managerial procurement skills:

1. Go the Certification Route, where you sign up for a comprehensive long term program to build thorough skills & gain an accreditation similar to a Degree/Masters Program. This is probably the best option even though a bit costlier than the other 2 options.

2. Take a Bundle of Courses and build skills to be a successful Procurement & Purchasing Manager. This is less costly than certification.

3. Take Single Procurement Training Courses to build your skills 'one at a time'. This is cheaper in the short term but more expensive long term as buying each course separately is more expensive than a bundle.

Below You will find previews of all the 3 options with links to more details for each.
