CPIT is proud to have formed close working relationships with a range of individuals, companies and organisations. These partnerships allow CPIT to make the most of the resources and information available, strengthening the institution and the wider community.
CPIT has close industry partnerships with Metro, The Tertiary Accord of New Zealand (TANZ), Tai Poutini and a number of private training organisations. The institution is in the process of setting up closer networks with ACE training, New Zealand's largest private computer training company. CPIT is also proud to have several international partnerships with sister institutions.
Industry partnerships enable CPIT to initiate projects to enhance learning and develop research and technology transfer. The institution along with partners has created TradeFIT (Trade Future In Training), a project to enhance and expand the trade, industry and infrastructure training that already operates at CPIT's Trades Innovation Institute.
