The APMG PPP Certification Program is an innovation of the Asian Development Bank (ADB), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) and the World Bank Group (WBG) and part funded by the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility (PPIAF) with a shared vision of enhancing PPP performance globally. CP3 P is the definitive credential to demonstrate to your peers that your abilities are aligned with international PPP good practice.
The purpose of the Public Private Partnerships Execution certification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply the structuring and drafting Process of PPP tender documents and the PPP contract, the tendering and awarding of PPP contracts, and the management of PPP contracts during the Construction and Operations Phases. A successful Execution candidate should, with suitable direction and as part of a multi-disciplinary team, be able to start structuring and drafting PPP tender documents and PPP contracts, manage the tender and awarding of PPP contracts, and manage PPP contracts during the Construction and Operations Phases, whilst anticipating and planning for hand back requirements at the end of the contract period, but they may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. This is the primary outcome intended from the certification.
For candidates involved on the private sector side of PPPs, successful achievement of the certification will enable the candidate, with suitable direction and as part of a multi-disciplinary team, to start applying knowledge of the PPP concept as an asset/business opportunity, Government’s tender processes, and Government’s perspective of the Construction and Operations Phases, to pursue PPP opportunities and understand their own roles and responsibilities in the implementation of the PPP and management of PPP projects on the private sector side.
The PPP Certification Program Guide, referred to as the PPP Guide, was written by PPP practitioners. It comprises best practices from many countries and aims to bring a consistency of terms used in PPPs and to increase skills and capacity for the delivery of PPPs. Please see a summary of the PPP Guide below:
The Public Private Partnerships Execution Course and Examination are based on Chapters 5-8 of the PPP Guide. This is a practitioner level certification – aimed at people involved in either developing or implementing PPP frameworks and in the initiation or implementation of PPP projects.
