As a service to members, AAPCM has formed strategic relationships with training providers that provide high quality courses in the fields of procurement and contract management. These training partners are Registered Training Organisations (RTO) and are therefore authorised to conduct training and issue qualifications that meet the requirements of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
Members are under no obligation to use AAPCM's training partners. For the purposes of achieving qualified member status, AAPCM is pleased to recognise qualifications in procurement and contract management that are issued by any Australian RTO or Australian University. People with overseas qualifications (including CIPSA certificates) may apply directly to AAPCM to have their equivalence determined and recognised by AAPCM.
Details of RTOs including their scope of registration may be found on the Australian Government's web site training.gov.au
From time to time, AAPCM may invite organisations to become AAPCM training partners. Training partners do not pay fees to the AAPCM in order to become or remain a training partner. The decision is made after careful consideration of factors including the values and ethos of the potential training partner, the quality of its staff and training programs and the needs of AAPCM members. AAPCM is not currently seeking any additional training partners.
AAPCM's training partners offer discounts for procurement and contract management courses to AAPCM members, so be sure to let them know about your membership at the time of booking your training.
