Benchmarking Infrastructure Operations Training group including PURC members

Save the date for August 2019. Applications available March 2019,

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.

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. According to the development banks and APMG International, “CP3P is the definitive credential to demonstrate to your peers that your abilities are aligned with international PPP good practice.”

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.

  • Understand the advantages and disadvantages of different project structures
  • Understand stakeholder rights and responsibilities in project finance
