Overview

This fast-track APMP for PRINCE2 Practitioners course is designed for individuals who hold a current PRINCE2® Registered Practitioner qualification and are looking to broaden their knowledge and qualifications by learning and taking the APMP examination. Project Managers, Team Managers and Project Support members will benefit from attending the course by understanding many project management aspects that the PRINCE2® method does not cover in depth.

The attainment of accreditations offered by professional bodies such as the Association for Project Management (APM) is increasingly seen as a recognised indicator of competence in project management. APMP is an internationally recognised knowledge based qualification (IPMA Level D) that enables individuals to demonstrate their knowledge for successful delivery of projects.

This APM PMQ for PRINCE2 Practitioners event is a mixture of delivery and practical sessions, delivered by an APM and PRINCE2® approved trainer. All trainers have practical experience of projects. Practical sessions are on an individual and team basis and feature throughout the event.
