An Overview of SIPMM Academy

SIPMM ACADEMY provides a range of structured professional part-time courses in the specialised areas of purchasing & procurement, logistics and supply chain management, as well as other business related courses. The academy was set up as an educational arm for a professional not-for-profit organisation, the Singapore Institute of Purchasing and Materials Management (SIPMM), which was established more than 4 decades ago in 1972. The courses are offered at various levels from Executive Certificate to Advanced Diploma, as well short courses at executive and professional level. All courses are approved for the government’s Skills Development Fund and SkillsFuture Schemes.

SIPMM ACADEMY has an extended corporate training and consulting arm, that conducts professional and skills development workshops on a regular basis. These workshops are organised as Skills Training Workshops and are conducted at hotels. They can also be customised as In-House Trainings delivered at the company’s premise. The focus of each topic is to develop professional and execution skills; such as negotiation, cost-savings strategy, warehousing, trade operations, purchasing operations, supply chain management, supplier management, strategic procurement, global sourcing, integrated logistics management, tender evaluation and contract management.

We focused on 4 core business areas:

We organise and conduct (1) Skills Training Workshops on a regular basis. Interactive programmes are designed for participants to network and benchmark against industry counterparts over trendy topics and these are facilitated by market experts. Topics range from soft skills such as negotiation, business presentations, etc.. to technical and specialised training including six-sigma, business re-structuring, logistics engineering, etc.

We design and conduct customised (2) In-House Trainings. These specialised trainings are designed and delivered at the company’s premises or at external venues that are conducive for skills development of staff. Our approach in customisation of the programme contents for more specific industry/corporate relevance is to initially understand our client’s needs. By working closely with the clients in analysing their requirements, our expert trainers design and develop practical solutions that address their specific needs. Many organisations, public and private, have benefited from our public and customised quality.

We conduct Masterclass sessions and administer requirements for the award of (3) Competency Certificates. These Certification Awards will validate your level of expertise, and provide you with the credentials, appropriate skills and accelerate your professional development. Recipients of these awards are eligible for World Credential Awards that are confered by World Certification Institute (WCI).

We also undertake and provide (4) Consultancy and Ancillary Services to firms, corporations and organisations to enhance the effectiveness of their processes and management decision making. Our team of consultants assist organisations to develop project proposals and acquisition of major assets.
