Course Description

This 10-week program will provide a comprehensive review of what is required to establish and maintain a robust and compliant vendor qualification and management program. Participants will come away with practical tools, checklists and templates to help ensure that vendor oversight is well-executed and performed in accordance with regulatory expectations. In addition to a review of vendor management processes and maintenance of the key components, participants will also develop techniques, including soft skills, needed to maintain ongoing communication, effective meeting management and conflict resolution often required in the oversight of vendors.

The resources required to take this on-line course are already at your fingertips - an Internet connection and a phone. After registering, you will receive an email confirmation that provides you with the Web Seminar link and audio connection information.
