Delivery and Costs

Course Delivery

APA Procurement Training can flexibly tailor the delivery of our courses according to the specific needs of individual clients. Here are some of the options available:


Online Learning through Virtual Study Centre

Due to popular demand from our students, we will continue to offer online learning for the full range of our courses. The ease and convenience of having online learning wherever you are based means that these courses are in high demand. Students attend a live classroom session with their peers and the class is a close replication of a face-to-face session including small group learning opportunities. There are approximately six tuition sessions and a revision session per module, followed by an assessment. The assessments can be taken in our exam centre in Swindon, at an alternative exam centre close to you or through remote invigilation online.


Distance learning with end of module revision

Learners are provided with recordings of the weekly online class sessions, learning materials and learning exercises on a weekly basis to guide them through the course material, and with ongoing access to online tutor support. 

Choosing distance learning very much depends on the level of support required by you as an individual and the time you have available to study.


Class based learning at our centre in Swindon

We are returning to some face-to-face teaching for those learners that prefer this method, and are currently offering this as part of a blended learning approach. This option provides comprehensive course coverage in a class based environment, and enables you to benefit from in person interaction with procurement professionals from different professional backgrounds and the opportunity to learn best practice from procurement professionals who work in diverse industry sectors and organisations.

Coursecosts include the course books for each module plus additional learning materials, as well as full tuition and exam preparation and the administrative cost to sit exams at our centre in Swindon. The only additional costs will be the CIPS exam fees and CIPS student membership which are payable directly to CIPS.


On-site course delivery at company or external locations

On-site delivery can be tailored to your specific needs. We can provide full or half day sessions on a flexible basis.
