I really would recommend the [CIPP] program!

Tabatha-Reese-CIPP-IPSCMI-Jamaica

I loved the lecturer [for CIPP]. His wealth and his knowledge of procurement is extensive. His deliverables in terms of taking all of that amount of information and condensing it in the program, I think that is very good.

I really would recommend the [CIPP] program for others because ...given the changes that are going on globally, I think any professional needs to continue to apply yourself and to continue to harness the technologies and what's changing so that you are able to do the best thing that you need to do in the right way and to manage your cost.

Join the [CIPP] program for your own self-development. Especially if you are in the role of as a procurement manager as I am, the recognition globally that you're certified means that to other entities, to other partners that you're working with, there is a confidence that you bring to the table to demonstrate that you have actually gone through the formal trainings, the disciplines.

This [CIPP] course has helped me to identify the best possible options, best possible contracting solutions that I could apply to introduce this to my business so that we are not necessarily working harder but working smarter in how we've been procuring our goods and our services.

[CIPP] raise(s) the bar on my expectations for future certifications!

Scott-Finley-Photo

I had expected the typical certification course where we review materials and then test. The group interaction and active class participation were great benefits and raise the bar on my expectations for future certifications. Take the [CIPP] program. It has great actionable material. Plus, networking with other world-wide professionals is a bonus.
