PURC Public-Private Partnerships (P3) Certification Training Program

Foundation Level Certified P3 Professional (CP3P) Program


The Public-Private Partnerships (P3) have great potential for addressing the infrastructure gap present in every country. However, these arrangements are easily misunderstood and fraught with challenges related to their financing, legal structure, management, and allocation of risk. A thorough understanding of these concepts and their applications is necessary for improvements in the access to, and effectiveness of, the crucial services that these assets provide.

As the first academic institution in the US to become an Accredited Training Organization (ATO) of the APMG’s PPP Certification Program, PURC is offering its inaugural P3 Foundation level training program for individuals working at a basic level of PPP implementation, with little or no prior experience.

The Foundation level is the first level of the Certified PPP Professional (CP3P) program, promoted by the World Bank and other multilateral development banks, and managed by APMG International. This certification is the only globally recognized PPP credential.

The Foundation level aims to standardize knowledge of the PPP process and terminology. The Foundation certification is a pre-requisite for the two Practitioner level certification in the APMG’s PPP Certification Program.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the advantages and disadvantages of different project structures
  • Understand stakeholder rights and responsibilities in project finance
  • Choose between different types of projects
  • Maximize positive outcomes for your project
  • Obtain the APMG’s PPP Foundation Level Certificate with a passing exam score
