How To Buy Services - Course 4500


Professional business training seminars and courses are stepping stones for reputable business leaders. Organizations of all types buy services. The amount spent on services is significant and the risk involved in making a purchase agreement is substantial. Those firms that buy tangible products also buy services, but there are differences in the way services are purchased compared with the way tangible products are purchased. There are differences in how products are described, there are differences in the laws that apply, and there are differences in the steps taken to protect the buying organization. This purchasing agent training course tells you what the differences are. It explains who should buy services and how to buy them properly. The professional training seminars for purchasing agents give you the essentials of negotiating services and provide examples of typical problems along with the recommended solutions.

What students say:

"This was a great course with detailed examples of situations to help understand the scope of the process of purchasing services for your employer that every buyer of services must take either for new buyers or experienced ones to serve as a refresher." - Carlos Mendez, Buyer, Kaman Precision Products, Inc.

The self-running online purchasing agent 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 these professional business training seminars more convenient for students. All materials are included in the price of the course and will be available online while attending classes. These purchasing agent courses are nonrefundable. Instructions for these courses are usually sent within a few days of registration. Normally, the Society likes to see this type of training for procurement professionals completed within a month of having sent out the instructions. If too much time elapses without a procurement training seminar being completed the student may have to register for it again.

It is each student's responsibility to contact the Society if instructions are not received within the time frames listed above. Failure to do so may result in additional fees. Students can contact the Society at 630-859-0250 or at
