COS-FP Qualifying Training & Exam

The Sourcing Governance Foundation 2 day course provides a basic knowledge of what the main concepts of outsourcing and sourcing governance are and how they can be applied. Outsourcing IT services has changed the management context for providing the business with the IT services it needs. Operational control is transferred into management of commercial relationships, contracts and coordination of the services from specialized suppliers. Best practice shows that implementing and operating a Sourcing Governance Function will require staff awareness and understanding of the key principles and concepts of outsourcing and sourcing governance. In this course an interactive approach is used combining lecture, discussion and exercises.

The course is a qualifying COS-FP certification training.  The course and qualifying COS-FP certification exam are offered by accredited trainers through APMG-International. Additionally the Sourcing Governance Foundation course has been mapped to the Outsourcing Professional Standards and accredited with 25 points towards the COP Certification, 15 CEH’s towards COP Recertification, and inclusion in the Outsourcing Professional Course Catalog.
