Overview

To assist you with earning a designation if you are a designer or OPM, we will apply the certification you earned towards the requirements you need to earn the MCPPO Designation. Instead of taking all three classes, you can opt out of the Public Contracting Overview class and just take the Supplies and Services Contracting and Design and Construction Contracting classes. The class ends with a multiple-choice exam.

Class date: No session.
