Spring 2018

P3RI-Antalya 2018

SD International is proud to present UF PURC in Antalya, Turkey | 2018 Spring as a world leader in international training on infrastructure and regulation.




SD International Consulting Inc. will hold its first “Strategic Dynamic” international training program with certificates, in Turkey in the field of Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) and Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) by engaging the University of Florida Public Utility Research Center-UF PURC between November 27 and December 2. The venue of the event, Antalya, is renown as the tourism center of Turkey, where participants would have opportunities to network, socialize and spend quality time with their peers.

The training event P3RI-Antalya 2018 realized by SD International would be on PPP and RIA by engaging UF PURC, an accredited trainer of APMG’ CP3P certification. P3RI-Antalya 2018 is an international training program that consists of two separate modules of 3 days each.

The first 3 day module is on the Regulatory Impact Analysis, aims that participants will be able to structure a RIA process. RIA is an area of expertise by UF PURC and is intended to provide tools and approaches for regulatory impact analysis (RIA). In this module, participants would learn on systematic appraisal of the potential impacts of a regulatory decision to assess whether the decision is likely to achieve the desired objectives and at what cost. Through case studies, exercises, and lectures, course participants learn how to identify key questions, identify stakeholders and engage them in the analysis, use appropriate analytical techniques, and communicate their findings.

The second 3-day module would cover basic knowledge on public-private partnership (PPP) terminology, structures and processes. This Foundation level course is the first level of the APMG’s Certified PPP Professionals (CP3P) Program, promoted by the leading multilateral development banks. The CP3P is a new professional certification and the program is an innovation and joint vision of the world’s leading developmental banks and agencies. Participants who pass the certification exam would have the opportunity to continue and complete APMG’s CP3P program. All participants would receive a certificate of participation.

CP3P intends to standardize and demonstrate knowledge on global PPP performance amelioration. The Foundation level exam of the CP3P would be administered on the morning of the last day on site, for an additional fee (make sure you indicate in your application whether you would be participating to the exam. Last minute participation is not possible).

In both events, there would be a focus on energy, water and telecommunication as well as infrastructures. Participants would have acquired knowledge on a shared international understanding on infrastructural best practice.

Together, both the RIA and PPP modules of the P3RI-Antalya event would provide participants an opportunity to demonstrate to peers their knowledge on infrastructure industries.

On the final day of the event, there would be a workshop and discussion regarding case studies in utility and network infrastructure. On this last, day, select members of the media as well as other guest speakers would be invited.

Special projects such as the Disi conveyor in Jordan would be presented during the last day of the events. The last day would also provide information about UF PURC’s experiences. In addition, the Body of Knowledge on Utility Regulations online tool would also be presented in this event.

On behalf of SD International Consulting Inc. look forward to seeing you in Antalya
