Course Description

Every organization has a P2P process (buying and paying for goods and services), but most are unmanaged—separated by an operational wall between Procurement and Accounts Payable. This course is designed for those looking to break down the silo thinking that hampers the performance of both groups. This course is also a must for any practitioner in a managed P2P process who is looking for peer-tested best practices on how to better integrate and optimize both sides of the process.

The self-study program (accessed via the IOFM.com E-Learning Center) comes with access to the e-textbook, on-demand 3.5-hour training video, practice quizzes and 3 attempts at the final exam (100 multiple-choice questions, 90 minutes, graded pass/fail).

IOFM does not offer CEUs for Certification classes. We know that earning your Certification takes a lot of time! However, the nature of continuing education is that it is additional training you do after you are certified in order to keep up with the standards set by the program. Therefore, earning your credentials does not count towards your CEU requirement. If you already hold an IOFM Certification, you may count subsequent live Certification classes for 6 CEUs towards that previously-held Certification.

15 Continuing Education Units per year (approx. 15 hours). Renewal is free as long as CEUs are logged before the Certification expires. Learn more.
