Training options for those new to project management

APM courses from Focus are delivered by expert trainers who bring real life experience.  APM qualifications are awarded by the Association for Project Management and follow a progressive structure enabling you to demonstrate your project management achievements, starting with the Introductory Certificate for those relatively new to the profession. You can choose the standard 2 day option or the 3 day Fundamentals of Project Management which covers the same topics but allows substantially more time for case studies and exercises which reinforce learning.

The popular APMP qualification is for those who already have some project management experience.  It is regarded as a pre-requisite by major organisations such as BAA and Rail Track. It is widely respected in the UK and has gained  international recognition through the International Project Managers Association (IPMA).
