CP3P Foundation Course

Location: Online Learning
Tuition: $1,000

Course Description

The Certified Public-Private Partnership Professional (CP3P) program is a credential that demonstrates that your abilities align with international PPP best practices.

An initiative led by five multilateral development banks (ADB, EBRD, IDB, IsDB, and WBG), the program is comprised of three exams—a Foundation exam and two Practitioner-level exams. The Foundation exam is a pre-requisite for the higher-level exams. Successful candidates for each exam are awarded a certificate and a digital badge.

The Foundation certification is for individuals involved in PPP projects who require a working knowledge of the key principles of financing PPP projects. The Foundation exam tests whether a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of chapter one of the PPP Guide to act as an informed team member of a PPP finance project.

IP3’s provision of the CP3P Certification Foundation course prepares participants to take the CP3P Foundation exam. This course illustrates the basic framework for executing PPP projects and is recommended for more advanced training in this field. It also provides an overview of PPP procurement, project structuring, and an introduction to project finance and the core elements of PPP bankability.
