PSPP 301: Procurement Practice – Putting it all Together

Procurement Practice – Putting it all Together

Building on the skills and knowledge gained in levels 1 and 2, this interactive, peer-to-peer, online course incorporates discussions on current case examples and topics, to expand understanding and solidify key points. There are two individual assignments to be completed and submitted, and participation in the discussion contributes to participants’ overall mark for the course.

Over the four weeks of the course, participants are expected to spend 7 to 8 hours per week completing their assignments while carrying out their regular workload. In this way, they learn how to budget time and to put into practice examples and illustrations they learned during the program.  Course description.
