On the Road Again

In the month of July, we offered Procurement Training Certificate series in 205 Gorgas, and all three sessions were very well attended.  The central location and larger venue seemed to be just the right combination to bring out lots of participants, and as a result 29 individuals were able to finish the certificate requirements.  Congratulations to all of our new certificate holders!

As a reminder, all three sessions are offered each month, usually in the South Lawn Office Building Training Room (see the course schedule below).  Over the next few months, we will be looking for more opportunities to reach out to our campus with training sessions in other locations.  For example, the P-Card Policies and Procedures class will be held in room 114, ten Hoor Hall on August 5th.  If your department would like to host a session, please contact Jennifer Clark.

Training in a Location Near You!

Congratulations to the College of Education for being the first to host the Procurement Training Certificate series for its staff!  For three weeks in a row, the College offered a different session to ensure that their staff had easy access to earn their certificates.

The sessions with that group went so well, that we have decided to take our act on the road!  Keep your eyes open for more training opportunities to be announced in a location near you.

Contact Jennifer Clark if your department or division would like to host future sessions.
