1. Purchasing and Procurement Basics: Learn The Basics Of Purchasing And Procurement

Not that long ago, purchasing and procurement focused on a rights-based theory: acquiring the right product of the right quality, in the right quantity, from the right source, at the right time, and at the right price. Today, purchasing and procurement has evolved beyond this theory to include many supply chain functions, with a focus on building strong, collaborative relationships within and outside the organization.

In this course, you will learn the basics of purchasing and procurement. You’ll receive an introduction to the supply chain, the purchasing cycle, and basic purchasing tools. You’ll also learn about the competitive bidding process, how to manage supplier performance, risk management techniques, and ways to build relationships.

2. Inventory Management - The Nuts and Bolts: Manage Your Inventory Accurately and Effectively

No business can survive very long without an effective program of controls over the parts and materials that are used in producing or distributing goods and services of the firm. This course will teach you how to effectively manage these items, which are collectively referred to as “inventory.”

In this course, you will learn about all aspects of inventory management, including common terms, the inventory cycle, how to maintain inventory accuracy, and what some of the latest trends are.

3. Logistics and Supply Chain Management: Learn the Basics of Logistics and Supply Management

Logistics and Supply Chain Management are arguably the lifeblood of any industry. If you can’t make your products and can’t get them to your customers then failure is guaranteed. If you don’t want to find your business in this predicament it’s a good idea to secure training on this pivotal topic to have a good grasp on success. This cover gives a broad overview of logistics and supply chain management and the tools you will need.

In this course you will learn about supply chains and logistics, various integration models, supply chain flows, who is who in a supply chain, as well as drivers and ways to optimize them. You will also gain an insight on other crucial points such as aligning your business and supply chain strategies, how to get the most out of your data, how to troubleshoot any problems that crop up and ways to develop your supply chain.

4. Budgets and Managing Money: Review The Fundamentals Of Finance

We all play a role in our organization’s financial health, whether we realize it or not. This course will give you the skills that you need to speak knowledgeably about budgets and managing money, and to contribute to the bottom line. We recommend that you complete “Accounting Skills for New Supervisors” before beginning this course.

To start this course, you will review the fundamentals of finance (including basic terms, generally accepted accounting principles, and financial roles in an organization). Then, you will learn about different types of budgets and a six-step budgeting process. You will also learn how to monitor budgets, perform basic ratio analysis, and compare investment opportunities.

5. An Environmental Audit Primer: Learn the Basics of Environmental Audit

It’s great to have a system in place for making your organization an environmentally sustainable one, but how do you know if that system actually works? Conduct an environmental audit, that’s how. This easy-to-understand course will guide you through the steps to pursue an audit, complete with corrective actions, and a closing meeting.

1. Purchasing and Procurement Basics: Learn The Basics Of Purchasing And Procurement

Not that long ago, purchasing and procurement focused on a rights-based theory: acquiring the right product of the right quality, in the right quantity, from the right source, at the right time, and at the right price. Today, purchasing and procurement has evolved beyond this theory to include many supply chain functions, with a focus on building strong, collaborative relationships within and outside the organization.

In this course, you will learn the basics of purchasing and procurement. You’ll receive an introduction to the supply chain, the purchasing cycle, and basic purchasing tools. You’ll also learn about the competitive bidding process, how to manage supplier performance, risk management techniques, and ways to build relationships.

2. Inventory Management - The Nuts and Bolts: Manage Your Inventory Accurately and Effectively

No business can survive very long without an effective program of controls over the parts and materials that are used in producing or distributing goods and services of the firm. This course will teach you how to effectively manage these items, which are collectively referred to as “inventory.”

In this course, you will learn about all aspects of inventory management, including common terms, the inventory cycle, how to maintain inventory accuracy, and what some of the latest trends are.

3. Logistics and Supply Chain Management: Learn the Basics of Logistics and Supply Management

Logistics and Supply Chain Management are arguably the lifeblood of any industry. If you can’t make your products and can’t get them to your customers then failure is guaranteed. If you don’t want to find your business in this predicament it’s a good idea to secure training on this pivotal topic to have a good grasp on success. This cover gives a broad overview of logistics and supply chain management and the tools you will need.

In this course you will learn about supply chains and logistics, various integration models, supply chain flows, who is who in a supply chain, as well as drivers and ways to optimize them. You will also gain an insight on other crucial points such as aligning your business and supply chain strategies, how to get the most out of your data, how to troubleshoot any problems that crop up and ways to develop your supply chain.

4. Budgets and Managing Money: Review The Fundamentals Of Finance

We all play a role in our organization’s financial health, whether we realize it or not. This course will give you the skills that you need to speak knowledgeably about budgets and managing money, and to contribute to the bottom line. We recommend that you complete “Accounting Skills for New Supervisors” before beginning this course.

To start this course, you will review the fundamentals of finance (including basic terms, generally accepted accounting principles, and financial roles in an organization). Then, you will learn about different types of budgets and a six-step budgeting process. You will also learn how to monitor budgets, perform basic ratio analysis, and compare investment opportunities.

5. An Environmental Audit Primer: Learn the Basics of Environmental Audit

It’s great to have a system in place for making your organization an environmentally sustainable one, but how do you know if that system actually works? Conduct an environmental audit, that’s how. This easy-to-understand course will guide you through the steps to pursue an audit, complete with corrective actions, and a closing meeting.
