The Public Private Partnerships Training 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. CP3P is the definitive credential to demonstrate to your peers that your abilities are aligned with international PPP good practice.
The Public Private Partnerships Training and Certification Program comprises three exams; a Foundation exam and two Practitioner level exams with the Foundation exam a pre-requisite for the Practitioner level exams. Successful candidates for each exam will be awarded a certificate.
Candidates can take one or both of the Practitioner exams in any order, however taking the Preparation exam before the Execution exam follows the lifecycle of a PPP. Candidates who have passed all three exams will be entitled to use the CP3P credential. The diagram below explains the exam pathway to becoming a Certified Public-Private Partnerships Professional.
