Buyer Training Materials

NC E-Procurement offers a variety of training options. These materials will be updated periodically; be sure to check back for the latest information.

Web Based Training

The Web-Based Training Courses are divided into individual courses covering topics such as system navigation, requisitioning, reporting and security administration. They are self-paced and provide an opportunity for users to build skills or reinforce knowledge.

In-Person Training

The NC E-Procurement team is available for free onsite training on an as-needed basis. If you would like to discuss available training opportunities and your entity's training needs, please contact the NC E-Procurement Help Desk, 888-211-7440, Option 1. Please note that all onsite training requests should be submitted by your entity's Security Administrator (for State Agencies) or EP Lite Administrator (for Community Colleges and School Systems).

Furthermore, each month the Division of Purchase & Contract (P&C) leads instructor-led training sessions in Raleigh, which are open to all NC E-Procurement users. For more information and to register for courses, please visit P&C's Calendar of Events.

We are excited to share how NC E-Procurement can help local education agencies and charter schools save significant amounts of money that can be used to address many needed projects in your schools.
