A word from our President on the subject of NEGOTIATION.


I have noticed in my classes a distinct interest in the subject of negotiation.?? I have provided links below to courses in Negotiation.? The first two are lengthy and comprehensive and deal with negotiation from a general point of view.? The third course is shorter and rather elemental.? It also deals with negotiation from a general point of view, with a focus on HR type negotiations.? The fourth course/lecture was written for a one day long seminar.? It is very condensed and compact and is great for those who need a good comprehensive review of the subject.? The focus of the fourth course/lecture is specifically contract negotiation.

Your class was superb! I am grateful for the opportunity to study under you!

I wish to thank the American Certification Institute very much for this opportunity to improve my knowledge/skills/ability in procurement.

Although I know that there is still much I need to learn in this field. I will continue my study and will certainly take one or more of your “follow-on courses” at a later date.
