Contract Lifecycle Series is now offering both in person and Live Webinar options!!!

NCMA Tysons is pleased to offer our Contract Lifecycle Series beginning September 19, 2017 both in person and live webinars! The 20 course Contract Lifecycle Series covers the entire contract lifecycle while incorporating lessons on the Business Systems in this series. Courses will include Contract Management tools and techniques and provide the knowledge necessary to obtain a professional certificate.

Participants will gain knowledge that is directly applicable to their career in Government Contracting and for each course completed; students earn a certificate for either 2 or 4 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) points (Business Systems Courses are 4 hours) they can use to assist them in obtaining or re-certifying for NCMA’s Certified Commercial Contract Manager (CCCM), Certified Federal Contract Manager (CFCM), Certified Professional Contract Manager (CPCM) or other industry association credentials.

Participants can sign up for an entire Series or mix and match any of the 20 classes.
