Host an NIGP Course at your Chapter


NIGP Instructors present the profession’s body of knowledge using an interactive, case study-based style, making the learning process immediately engaging and relevant.


One of the best ways to engage your chapter membership is by hosting NIGP courses right in your back yard. Choose from one-two- and three-day!  Class size is limited to ensure plenty of small group and individual activity.

One of the best ways to approach your chapter’s educational needs is to design a yearly training schedule. This can be done by surveying your members and planning a year out educational calendar.
