Achilles Procurement Courses

Regulated buyers are restricted in who they can buy from. Our training helps buyers understand and navigate these restrictions – overcoming a major obstacle in procurement but maximising on making opportunities accessible.

Public procurement is often complicated. Whenever taxpayers’ money is spent – whether in the field of utilities, health, housing, transport or critical infrastructure – buyers have a duty to exercise the highest levels of diligence.  Having a detailed understanding of the procurement rules – and the practical implications for tenders – is a huge competitive advantage. Stakeholders often rely on their procurement teams for advice and guidance, but our courses would also benefit contract managers, finance and other operational stakeholders.

At Achilles, our team of experienced and qualified training practitioners, CIPS qualified practitioners and master’s degree graduates in Public Procurement Law with more than 30 years of experience, have developed procurement training courses aimed at procurement practitioners, contract managers, finance and other operational stakeholders. Attending our CPD accredited courses you’ll:

  • Gain a detailed understanding of the relevance of Procurement Regulations
  • Take away the practical knowledge and understanding to run compliant procurement activities
