In pursuance of its aims and objectives, the institute started 1-year distance learning course consisting of 2 semesters of 6 months each in the year. The syllabus and the course content were designed by an expert with extensive experience. Both the semesters are independent of each other. Candidates can join any semester first and do the other one subsequently.

The course is very well suited for all professionals working in Materials Management departments of PSUs and Private Industry even though it is modelled on Railways who have done pioneering work in this field. It covers all the Principles of “Public Procurement and Supply Management”, which are equally applicable to PSUs and Private Industry.
Reading material is dispatched to students paper-wise along with Assignment Paper and students are given approx. 1 month’s time to read the course material for that paper. Assignment Paper is so designed that they cannot do it unless they have at least gone through and read the course material. Assignment Papers are received and evaluated by the Course Director who gives marks and gives his comments on each answer. Students are encouraged to correspondence/talk to Course Director for clarifying their doubt.
