Training Approach

The training programs are based on extensive research on effective training of adult learners in Africa. Because the courses are practical oriented, emphasis is placed on hands-on work. Learners are requested to bring their Tablets and iPads loaded with Ms Office software and a calculator.


Based on our research, learners prefer training largely based on the following training methods: Discussions, simulations, group work and role-play.


The successful learners are issued with a Certificate of Practical Training. Authentication of the certificates is done online using the website www.capsafrica.org


The learners valuate the training by responding to various aspects of the training. This includes satisfaction with content, instructors, learning environment, materials, and learner groups. A pre-and-post assessment of the learners will measure the knowledge gained during the training and achievement of the training objectives.


The courses are based on county, national, regional, and international best practices. Learners gain expertise procuring under different procurement systems of Government, Development Banks, and Agencies.


The training modules are designed to appeal to all learning styles. The courses cater for learners that prefer concrete experience, observation, reflection, theory, as well as create new learning experiences.


A mix of national and international instructors will deliver the course. They hold advanced degrees in procurement and contracts management coupled with over twenty years international practice in procurement and contracts management.


The training is designed to ensure learners acquire practical skills, with minimal theory. New entrants gain skills on how to perform specific tasks in procurement and contracts management. More experienced practitioners update their skills on best practices in carrying out procurement in any African country and emerging markets.


The results of these training programs will be well trained staff equipped with practical skills and ready to perform their duties to the required standards. Each participant will get workbook of practical materials to to refer to at work.


The Centre for Advanced Procurement Studies has a professional training license from the Kenya Institute of Supplies Management (KISM) and is accredited by the National Industrial Training Authority of Kenya (NITA).


About 87% of learners prefer a research session on procurement and contracts management. Thus, each course has a session to discuss research topics, brief on research methods, analysis of data, and report writing.
