The IRF now offers a PPP education programme
IRF has joined an elite group of continuing education providers accredited to administer Public-Private Partnership proficiency credentials to aspiring road and transportation professionals
With this accreditation, professionals taking the APMG-approved IRF course on PPPs may go on to apply for a Public-Private Partnerships Professional Certification (CP3P) established by APMG, a global examination institute.
The CP3P program, whose aim is to enhance PPP performance globally, is recognised by leading institutions. These include the World Bank Group, the Asian Development Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Inter-American Development Bank, and the Islamic Development Bank.

"The CP3P accreditation is a notable achievement and a great enhancement to the PPP courses we have been delivering since 2011," said IRF vice-president for International Programs Magid Elabyad. "Road professionals certified under the CP3P program can showcase to their peers and clients that their skills are aligned with international best practice."
IRF president and CEO C Patrick Sankey said, "With traditional public funding mechanisms increasingly constrained, it is essential that road & transportation professionals become familiar with other financing instruments through a learning environment whose credentials have been independently vetted. We are proud of this important milestone which confirms the IRF's role as the industry's most trusted brand in continuing education."
The IRF will run CP3P certification programs year round at its newly launched Global Training Institute, as well as on-demand in different locations globally.
