Prin cele doua centre de studii legate de Integrate Investment, Universitatea Nationala de Aparare “Carol I” CIPS Study Centre si Integrate Investment CIPS Study Centre, studentii pot opta sa urmeze cursurile cu trainer (guided learning), sau pot studia individual, pentru intregul portofoliu de calificari – de la nivelul 2, Certificate in Procurement and Supply Operations, pana la nivelul 6, Professional Diploma in Procurement and Supply.
