Professionals in the IT sourcing world can now find certification that validates their skillset. July 31 will be the exam to commence this highly sought after new found respect for procurement and sourcing professionals.
CAUCUS, the Association of Technology Acquisition Professionals, is launching the inaugural Certified Technology Procurement Executive (CTPE) Test-Taking Day. It will be held on July 31 and available online through a secure test-taking site.
People who are interested in taking the exam will benefit from registering early, as this once-a-year special comes with a significant discount and all associated preparation materials, webinars, events, etc., will be complimentary during the month of July. Current CAUCUS members may have a little more exposure to the preparation, as member-only forums will display possible test questions.
Elgin Ward, CAUCUS director, states, “Preparing for this exam in a group, whether it is in the forums, webinars, conference calls, etc., gives everyone a fighting chance. This will translate directly into a much higher success rate for certification seekers.
It is our goal to continue to promote, educate, and further our members in their field of expertise. The certification validates their value in the IT professional workplace on procurement and high-level acquisitions. Giving our members and certification holders the tools to be the best in their profession and to further their careers within their organization is not only my goal, but the goal of the entire organization.”
The entire registration fee for July, including preparation materials and activities and the test, will be 30% off the regular pricing during the month and can be found online at http://CAUCUSNet.com, or interested professionals can register with a call to 407-740-5600.
CAUCUS, for 20 years, is the only association serving the specialized needs of the technology acquisition professional—the person responsible for negotiating and managing contracts with suppliers of technology products and services. Belonging to a group that can help with your daily life as an IT acquisition professional will help level the playing field when dealing with highly trained sales professionals.
