At the recent ISM2015 Annual conference in Phoenix (AZ), Procurement Academy has been accredited by the International Federation of Purchasing and Supply Management (IFPSM) for meeting the highest global standards for its ‘Certified International Procurement Professional (CIPP)’ and ‘Certified International Advanced Procurement Professional (CIAPP)’ training programs.

The IFPSM is the union of 48 National and Regional purchasing associations and represents some 250,000 members worldwide. To enable the procurement profession to speak with a common voice, they have created a Global Standard for educational programs of bachelor level around the world.

“An independent audit team of professors, endorsed by the IFPSM, has reviewed our programs for the last year and has recently confirmed that our content, educational programs and procedures are of world-class level. The Global Standard has only been achieved by a handful of universities and procurement associations to date. It is without a doubt the foremost accreditation for educational programs in the industry, which is good news for our corporate clients” says Raf Verheyden, Managing Partner of Procurement Academy. “We offer the high quality that corporations are looking for, and we now also can offer the global recognition corporate learners are looking for.”
