The APD Cost Management Certification is a 4-month on-line certification program designed to provide purchasing professionals with the knowledge, skills and take-away tools required to understand and achieve should-be direct material costs.

We provide a new look at Purchasing 101 foundations while accelerating individuals to Purchasing 4.0, where data is leveraged with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning to move to optimal pricing, should-be costs and predictive cost modeling.

Course materials are based upon the processes, techniques, and real-world insights we have gained during our 16 year in-the-industry experience helping clients identify, analyze, and negotiate better pricing with their suppliers.
