Book now

This course is based on the PPP Guide developed by APMG International, the most reputable global accreditation and examination institute. At the end of the programme delegates will take the APMG CP3P Foundation exam to become a recognised PPP Foundation professional.

This comprehensive ten-day, ten-module programme will build an understanding of the importance of a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) framework, focussing on the basis structure, types, and processes of a successful PPP project.

It identifies the underlying principles and elements of PPP good practice that are applicable in most emerging markets and developing economies. Delegates will study a broad definition and the basic features of a PPP project, and how this contrasts with traditional procurement processes. They will also identify the benefits and potential challenges of implementing PPPs as a procurement option.

On this highly practical programme, delegates will develop an understanding of the need to develop a PPP framework and how to carefully manage the PPP process, with a focus on its phase, activities, outputs and decision cycle. Delegates will also receive training on Infrastructure Finance and an introduction to Islamic Finance, as well as an examination of the role of Multilateral Development Banks, government, and the private sector in successfully implementing a PPP.
