While this number of classes helps purchasers who are looking to fulfill a certain need, I understand that so many choices can cause confusion. I often get the question: “I am new to purchasing – where do I begin?”

If you are new to purchasing, I recommend that you begin by taking the introductory purchasing training course entitled “Mastering Purchasing Fundamentals.”

This class covers the basics from terminology and procedures and frames basic purchasing in a step-by-step process.

I love to welcome new faces to a wonderful profession. If you’d like more information, please feel free to contact me.
