IPFA Training: Sydney: Practical Applications of Procurement and Project Finance

The International Project Finance Association (IPFA) is delighted to announce its latest Practical Applications of Procurement and Project Finance course, which builds on the concepts of procurement and project finance structures covered in our ‘Understanding Project Finance & PPP’ course.

The programme is a two-day course; delegates have the option to attend any 1 or 2 days. The full programme and course fees are set out below.

Day One covers “Procurement – Current Trends in Structures”. Participants will examine emerging policy issues, the current finance market for Australian infrastructure and the evolution of procurement through discussions and reviewing case studies.

Day Two, “Financing the Project – Structuring to Manage Risk”, focuses on how project financing differs extending the discussion from availability PPPs to more complex projects in other sectors including transportation and energy. Discussions and case studies will be key as participants review project cashflows, contractual structures and risk management techniques used in Project Finance and PPP projects. Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of techniques needed to successfully implement and manage Project Finance deals.

The course will be facilitated by Ian Greer and Martin Locke, leading practitioners in the project finance market. Training will take place in the form of interactive discussions, working groups and case studies. Detailed course materials will also be provided and each delegate will receive a certificate upon satisfactory completion of the course, plus 6 CPD points for 1 day attendance or 12 CPD points for 2 days attendance.
Full details of our course instructors can be found via our website.
