Early Bird Pricing for Registrations on or before June 17th, 2022

The APD Cost Management Certification is a 4-month on-line development 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.

Each month all participants will complete a module by:

  • Attending a live, two-hour group session that delivers/reinforces content and responses to any questions
  • Watching 4-5 video podcasts that enables participants to self-pace
  • Performing 2-3 exercises that reinforces content and builds should-be skills
  • Completing the certification exam for the materials presented in the module
