Frequently asked questions

You are always welcome to contact us, should you have any questions.

  • The title says 10 weeks. Do I have to complete the programin 10 weeks?

    No, the appointed mentor and participant create a schedule in the beginning of the program. We have examples of programs executed in 4 weeks and in 16 weeks.

  • Do I have to pay with credit card/Pay pal? I would like to have an invoice sent to my employer .

    No problem, we can issue invoice after receiving a Purchase Order.

  • I am Procurement Manager and would like the Program be integrated in the introduction program in my procurement department. Can we arrange a SLA and discounted price list?

    Yes, of course. It is a very good idea to align the procurement language in-between all team members.

  • We have a trainee program for junior buyers. Can we run a team in the program instead of individual programs?

    Yes. But we recommend groups up to 5 participants. Mainly because all mentor sessions are managed in e-meetings and it is hard to keep all participants involved when groups include higher count. When running groups we usually increase the meeting frequency to once a week.

  • What languages do you support?

    All online courses are in English (with captions). We currently have mentors capable in running mentor sessions in English, Finnish, Spanish and Swedish.
