    TROY, Mich., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Walsh College has created the
 Procurement Practices Institute (PPI) to provide comprehensive educational
 programs designed exclusively for the procurement industry.  The new institute
 has formed a unique collaboration with the Center for Procurement Practices
 (CPP), a nonprofit organization, to become its educational arm.
     PPI will offer review course exams at the Walsh Novi Campus for the
 Accredited Purchasing Practitioner (A.P.P.) and Certified Purchasing Manager

 Practices Institute to respond to the rapidly changing procurement and supply
 change management processes," said Walsh College President Keith A. Pretty.

 business curriculum as well as the physical space for the Institute.  CPP,
 Walsh College and the Detroit chapter of the National Association of
 Purchasing Management (NAPM) together will provide an ongoing structured
 educational program that immediately delivers results.
     "We have created a value-add educational program which participants can
 use to immediately achieve bottom-line cost savings for their organizations,"
 said Fred Klupp, president of the CPP.  "The curriculum for the program will
 address B2B commerce, commodity and supply chain management, contemporary
 purchasing principles, strategic procurement practices, and the technology
 revolution."
     CPP is a non-profit organization focused on providing continuing education
 to procurement professionals.
     "Participants will have the opportunity to earn continuing education
 credits towards NAPM's Accredited Purchasing Practitioner or Certified
 Purchasing Manager certifications," said NAPM Metro Detroit President John
 Stern.  Several courses will prepare participants for the NAPM tests as well
 as provide the necessary credits required before taking the test.
