Free Procurement Training Procurement Training Investment Fund (PTIF)

CPC are always looking for ways to support the education purchasing community and are delighted to launch our first round of funding for procurement training courses.

The opportunity to participate in training to enhance both your personal and professional development is something we care about at the CPC and we are pleased to offer the opportunity for our members to attend a variety of procurement training courses. The courses are a mixture of e-learning, self-study and class attendance to cater for different styles of learning and time commitments. The courses are from providers experienced in delivering procurement training and are focussed on topics that we feel would be of most practical use to our members.

Each course offers CPD accreditation allowing students to bolster their CV with new skills and giving recognition that the training is the same standard as CPD in other disciplines.
