Course books for CIPS Qualifications

CIPS has published a full suite of course books to support the qualification unit content launched by CIPS in March 2013.


The books have been produced in partnership with Profex Limited and further our aim to establish a world class publishing operation dedicated to the needs of the procurement profession.

 

Please follow the links below to find the course book to match your study.  Studying members can also follow this link to access exemplar questions and answers for the 2013 qualifications which will further help them in their studies.

 

Once you have bought your books, please check the 'Upgrading the course books' web-page to see if we've added a note on anything that needed correcting or clarifying, or for example, if a piece of legislation has been updated, or an organisation has changed its name.
