This online purchasing course is for those who work for manufacturing companies or who want to prepare themselves for the possibility of obtaining a position in a manufacturing company. It is a course for buyers and managers who buy products and services for manufacturing organizations, for those new to their jobs, or for those who want to refresh their knowledge. The online purchasing course gives information about the differences in buying for various types of industries. You will learn about the objectives of purchasing for manufacturing. The online purchasing course covers the buying process for manufacturing, the important issues of buying tooling, the importance of proper specifications, and the essentials of inventory management. JIT, MRP, and Supply Chain Management systems are described, as well as Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma.

The self-running online purchasing courses are attended via the Internet. They require up to two or three continuous hours of attendance. Students are initially contacted by email with instructions on how to take the course for which they have registered. Students may attend the course at any time during the day. This makes the classes more convenient for students. All materials are included in the price of the course and will be available online while attending classes. These online manufacturing courses are nonrefundable. Instructions for these courses are usually sent within a few days of registration. Normally, the Society likes to see these types of courses completed within a month of having sent out the instructions. If too much time elapses without a course being completed the student may have to register for it again.
