NIGP Courses

Effective July 1, 2009:

NIGP will no longer accept purchase orders as a form of payment when purchasing a Webinar, Online Course, Online Assessment, or bookstore item by Print/Fax or Print/Mail. Payment forms will be limited to major credit cards and checks.

When registering for a Webinar by Print/Fax or Print/Mail, please include your credit card information on the registration form. If you prefer to pay by check, please complete the information on the registration form and attach your check made payable to NIGP.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. We believe this new policy will be a time, labor and paper-saver for us all.



If you would like to use your scholarship or door prize for an NIGP course, please download and complete NIGP's hard copy Registration Form and send to NIGP (copying SCAGPO's Professional Development Chairperson).  The Certificate of Scholarship must be included with the registration forms. Please forward a copy of the registration package, invoice, etc. to



The following courses are being offered through SCAGPO and registration is open.  Please remember that registering early will assure you get the absolute best course fee.  There is a tiered registration fee and those that register at least 60 days prior to the class will receive a $25.00 discount off the normal class registration cost.

Registering early will also help us identify those classes that will have the minimum number of students in order to hold the class.  We must have eight (8) students registered 30 days prior to the class in order to hold the class.
