Requirements for Online Classes

Please note that the NM EDGE is currently delivering the majority of our classes using the Zoom videoconferencing platform.

You will need the following to participate in these NM EDGE online live Zoom classes:

  1. Access to the internet using a device/computer with a camera and microphone (most laptops, iPads or similar device have these). You will need to leave your camera on during the entire class.
  2. You will need to have a quiet spot from which to participate (no distractions in the background, please).
  3. You will take the pre and post-tests online, too, so be mindful of the screen size.
  4. You will be emailed information about Zoom “practice sessions” and we recommend that you attend one practice to learn how we plan to use zoom for these classes.
  5. The day before the classes you will be emailed a zoom link to access the class.
  6. Access to the pretest is open 15 minutes prior to the start of class. Pre-test and post-test links are provided in class. Materials are emailed after everyone has completed the pretest.
  7. If you are taking Public Purchasing Classes to earn your Chief Procurement Officer designation or to recertify your CPO designation, you will need to provide a photo ID or the final test on Friday - more information will be given during class.
  8. If you are taking recertification classes for Chief Procurement Officer (CPO), please login to your NM EDGE Student Record and double check your contact information including your mailing address, CPO number, and phone number (all are required in the report we provide to State Purchasing).
  9. If you are seeking recertification for your Chief Procurement Officer designation through State Purchasing and are not able to participate in a live online class during the quarter that your certification expires, you can request a temporary waiver from State Purchasing (see the State Purchasing Division website for the Director's statement about this).
  10. If you do not feel you are able to participate in these classes with the requirements as specified, you may remove yourself from the classes by logging in to your student account and clicking remove.
