How much time per week should I spend on each course?

PSPP 101 is 100% online and takes around 6-8 hours to complete. You will have access for up to six months.

PSPP 201PSPP 202, & PSPP 203 each require roughly 18 hours of your time over 4 weeks and include one live online seminar per week (like a webinar except with open 2-way communication between you, your classmates and your instructor).

PSPP 301 also spans 4 weeks, but involves interactive forum discussions, case studies, and completion of two individual assignments where you apply concepts you have learned in the Program to real-life procurement scenarios. Team communication takes place over NECI’s dedicated online discussion forum, and the course requires about 36 hours of your time to complete.
