How to register for a course

Registration for a course is remarkably simple. Register online with a Government Purchase Card. Sign a single document to get the deal done and the funds transferred. Use your own agency-specific procurement forms. We’ll use our Federal-sector expertise to get you the solutions you need, when you need them, without a protracted contracting process.
