Registration fee: $795 per learner (Member discounts of 10%-20% apply. You are not required to be a Member to enroll.)
Designed for: The Procure-to-Pay Specialist (APPS) Certification Program is designed for individuals responsible for executing any part of the P2P process.
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.
