Training

  • Training is obtained after the purchasing card application is received and processed by the Purchasing Department.
  • Cardholder training can be obtained by completing the online training, or by training in-person in our office.  All Cardholders AND Reallocators must obtain training before the Purchasing Card can be picked up.
  • Possession of the Purchasing Card must take place within 90 days of training.

Online Training:

  • A Cardholder may obtain training online. This method is self paced and may take more or less time than in-person training. Training must be completed before a card can be obtained. Completion of the training will be verified by the Purchasing Department.
