Course description

The Preparation Course consists of an intensive four to five-day workshop that will provide practitioners with an in-depth knowledge of the relevant aspects covered during the course. It will also reaffirm the basic features and characteristics of PPPs.

Course Aims

The Preparation Course is designed to provide practitioners with the knowledge and understanding to apply and tailor PPP frameworks and PPP project identification, screening, appraisal, and preparation processes in a given governmental context.

With suitable direction and as part of a multi-disciplinary team, a successful public sector practitioner should be able to start applying the new-found knowledge leading to improved public service delivery.

For practitioners involved in the private sector side of PPPs, the certification will enable them, with suitable direction and as part of a multi-disciplinary team, to start applying knowledge of the PPP concept as an asset/business opportunity, and of governments objectives and institutional arrangements.
