“NLPA’s self-paced program supports balancing work & study, with each level building upon the other across the SPSM body of knowledge. My own experience completing the SPSM, SPSM2 and SPSM3 certifications enhanced the core value of ‘LEARN EVERYDAY’.”
Chris Ridener SPSM1, SPSM2,
The programs offered are well designed with current technology and easy to understand and follow. The purchasing certifications that NLPA offers not only met my own personal needs as a student but, has helped my educational institution educate and certify numerous students who are now getting positions in local industry because of these credentials.
NLPA focuses on the knowledge and skills that a purchasing professional needs to succeed in his or her daily job and presents all formulas and processes in the context of examples.
The very best features of the NLPA training program are: it’s online and convenient, it is user-friendly, the instructor and instructions are well-organized and resourceful, and the examples are real-world applications” of effective procurement techniques.

Professional Purchasing Project Management is one of the best online courses that I have undertaken. The entire module is very well structured with excellent flow and explanations. With the number of projects that we all work on in the corporate sector, this is an excellent course that gives insight and learning on managing resources, timelines while we strive to meet the project deadlines.
Catherine Shaw, SPSM, SPSM2, SPSM3
I have worked in the procurement field for almost 30 years even with all my experience, I learned something new in every single course. The value this program has brought will benefit both me and my employer for years to come, and for that, I will be forever grateful. Thank you NLPA!

We have seen SPSM as a change management tool to support our people to go on the journey to world-class procurement.

Executing a Global Sourcing Strategy is a useful course for any sourcing professional who interacts with suppliers outside of his/her own country. It also offers a fairly detailed examination of the impact of varying cultures in business interaction. Incoterms are aptly and simply explained, consideration is given to risks that are inherent in international procurement and the lessons offer useful information about supplier evaluation and contract monitoring as well.
Karen M Bushnell, MBA, SPSM Purchasing
I’ve learned a bit with each class but all of the material presented in this class was new to me so I learned a great deal. I’m in talks now with a company that does much of its business overseas and this class will prove to be invaluable. All of the courses have been great. I anxiously await the next one!
