Our Unique Offer

As a demonstration of our commitment to our students – DPSS will offer any student who fails a particular CIPS subject examination to retake the course with us – FREE OF CHARGE
DPSS opened their Basingstoke course Centre in October 2012 by initially offering students the ability to study for CIPS Qualification, CIPS Online Courses and MCIPS Training, using a range of evening class workshops.
The Centre, which is managed by Geoff Kontzle, Associate Director of DPSS Consultants, initially offered Level 4 and Level 5 modules for students wishing to develop their purchase and supply careers by gaining a professional qualification.

  • Online document reference library – CIPS business intelligence
  • Guidance on current practice from specialist knowledge groups

    Here at DPSS Consultants we offer four CIPS qualifications, meaning that you can start at the Level 2 Certificate in Procurement and progress all the way to a Level 6 Professional Diploma to gain the prestigious ”MCIPS” status.

"Undertaking the CIPS course has helped me to progress my career and the work that is put in by the team at DPSS has helped me understand what a senior buyer role is all about and has also helped put what have learnt in the class room to use within the company that I currently work for. I have also been able to promote the good work that has been undertaken by DPSS with my own experiences to my current employer and they have taken this on board and are now sending all of the category buyers and category assistants through CIPS and have named DPSS as the sole and preferred supplier to deliver this to our organisation."
