The NIGP Certification Commission’s Authorized Education Provider Program takes the guesswork out of recertification by providing reasonable assurances to NIGP-CPP certificants that their educational activities should result in Continuing Education Hours (CEHs) for recertification if the activity aligns with the Public Procurement Competency Framework.
The program establishes standards on the types of educational activities which are accepted for CEHs and recognizes those educational providers who meet these standards and earned the program’s brand… the “Seal of Approval” for educational providers.
It is noted that an educational organization is not required to pursue the Authorized Education Provider designation. The program is strictly optional. The key benefit of the program is to the NIGP-CPP certificant who gains confidence that an Authorized Education Provider has met the standards necessary to issue CEHs.
The following organizations have successfully demonstrated that the rigorous standards established by the Commission have been met through the Organization’s portfolio of procurement education activities:
- Authorized through 2/26/2026
- Authorized through 7/24/2026
