    The Diploma in Procurement and Supply Chain course is awarded by the prestigious CIPS, Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply and is the first chartered purchasing course of its kind in Ireland. 

    Designed for those who aspire to work as Chartered Procurement & Supply professionals, this is the primary step on the route to the Professional Diploma in Purchasing & Supply level 6 UK (broadly comparable to level 8 in Ireland) and full Membership of CIPS.

    Due to the chartered nature of the award, graduates will be in an excellent position to capitalise on national and multi-national career opportunities, here in Ireland and abroad. 

    The Diploma in Procurement & Supply course is recognised on the UK framework by Ofqual at level 4 UK (broadly comparable to level 6 on NFQ in Ireland).  If you have no procurement or supply chain management experience, it is advisable you consider doing the Procurement & Supply Certificate, or Public Procurement Certificate first.
