This curriculum is designed for experienced quality professionals that are new or relatively new to supplier quality and supplier management. The curriculum is comprised of three separate, interrelated courses:

  • Introduction to Supplier Management: Introduces you to foundational supplier management concepts and principles and teaches you how to design and implement a supplier management program
  • Auditing for Improved Supplier Performance: Emphasizes the importance of auditing suppliers to ensure continuous improvement and shows you how to develop an effective supplier auditing system

To ensure a robust, engaging learning experience, all three courses leverage case studies, individual and group activities, hands-on exercises, and knowledge checks to help you transform the conceptual into the practical.

WebEx – Virtual Course: Advance Preparation and Student Information

Join a Test Session

We strongly suggest that you join a WebEx test session in advance of your scheduled virtual training, using your preferred web browser. This can help prevent problems launching content the day your training begins.

If you do not have administrative privileges on the SAME computer you will be using the day of your training (i.e., your workstation within your organization) you may need the assistance of your local IT/IS help desk staff for the platform to engage correctly.

Deactivate Pop-up Blockers

You should deactivate any pop-up blockers, spam filters, and company firewalls that could prevent the WebEx client platform or web-based course from working properly. Third-party toolbars such as Bing, Yahoo, and Google should also be disabled due to their own pop-up blocking capabilities.
