CD-ROM based individual ERP/MRP training

By panasiants ·
I work as a buyer in a small company that does not use MRP/ERP systems.
However I want to get some basic hands-on training in this area, so as to be able to move to a larger company that does use MRP/ERP. (I am now attending several courses in supply/inventory management, but they provide only very general info on this subject).
So far I found only TBT (technology-based training) from Oracle, which sells ERP modules on CD-ROMs for $600/ea. But the modules are so narrow, that you have to buy at least 3-4 to cover purchasing application. Since I shall be paying for it out of my pocket, this does not seem a very good deal to me.
Have any of you heard of any other CD-ROM based training options and books that can give me an ability of practically handling MRP/ERP applications in purchasing ?
Your input will be greatly appreciated.
