NIGP provides options and pathways for earning public recognition regardless of whether you are just entering the public procurement profession or are a seasoned professional; and regardless of the role you play (and aspire to play) in your public entity.
We are giving you total flexibility based on what you want or need to learn – and then integrating our credentialing system around that learning to give you the recognition you deserve.
Three levels of certificates
You have options ... three levels of certificates to fit your specific professional development goals:
- Level One: Competency Badges
- Level Two: Core Certificates
- Level Three: Designations
These levels are based on the concept of stacking credentials to achieve a higher level of recognition. Therefore, you begin by earning competency badges (level one) that are stacked to earn a core certificate (level two) that are stacked to earn a designation (level three).
Not everyone is seeking a certificate or designation. That’s perfectly ok. This is about choice and pathways. The bottom line: there is a level of publicly recognized credential for everyone who learns and successfully completes the assessment.
