Higher Education Virtual Roundtable

Delivering Effective Knowledge Transfers

Open to end-users in all sectors and providers

Wednesday, August 1, 2018



Is your cardholder training effective? Do you employ various methods to meet the needs of your organization? How frequently is training required? These questions will be discussed during this interactive discussion and will serve as the basis for larger conversations about:

  • preparing periodic audit procedures to identify different areas where training is most needed
  • analyzing current procedures for clear guidelines on the appropriate use of Purchasing Cards
  • reevaluating and improving current training modules and/or materials from shared ideas obtained from this roundtable

This event correlates with Section V, “Program Implementation/Pre-Program Design/Training Plan, Responsibilities and Format(s)" and Section VII, “Managing the Program/Training” of the CPCP exam.

The registration form will ask if you wish to be a panelist or in listen-only mode. You should choose "panelist" if you wish to participate during the discussion. The event will allow up to 24 panelists.

Target Audience

Program Administrators and Program Managers who create, maintain and conduct trainings for their organization’s card program. This event will benefit P-Card professionals at all levels. This event could also benefit those preparing for the CPCP exam.
