Functional Programmes

Our functional training programmes are demand-driven courses based on investigations or research. Gaps or complexities may arise in the public sector that require immediate or customised training interventions. Through these programmes we enhance skills and competencies so public servants can execute their duties efficiently in a demanding environment. NIPAM, therefore, develops focused-based and tailor-made training courses that are delivered to specific target clients in the public sector based on a particular need or upon their request.
