"I have worked in the procurement field for almost 30 years and I felt it was time I received some professional training to complement all my years of experience. NLPA's Senior Professional in Supply Management® Program was just the program for me. Even with all my experience, I learned something new in every single course. The value this program has brought will benefit both me and my employer for years to come, and for that I will be forever grateful. Thank you NLPA!"
