INNOVATIVE LEARNING, INSTANT RECOGNITION
Get to Know Pathways
Careers no longer follow linear paths. Instead, they are fluid and full of new opportunities and challenges at every turn. Navigating this can be challenging, but it can be made easier with the right development plans and learning opportunities to guide you.
That’s why we created Pathways, a professional development and credentialing program designed to help procurement professionals advance in your careers at every stage of your career journey. Whether you're just entering the profession, at the mid-point or you're an emerging leader, NIGP Pathways can help accelerate your career.
Pathways provides personalized learning paths customized for every stage of your career with instant recognition through the use of digital badges and served on a platform for “always-on” learning. It's designed to give you the skills and build your capabilities for a long and successful career in public procurement.
The new Designated Public Procurement Associate designation NIGP offers really helps people new to the profession by expanding their understanding of Procurement. The Core Certificates that make up the designation uses modern teaching techniques like group activities, engaging coursework and sharing experiences while giving students a good foundation for future certifications.
