The training is delivered by highly experienced project management trainers, with participation by the delegates being integral to the learning process. By using activity and case study, delegates will explore project management issues via group discussion and practical application of key concepts.
All delegates must have a good understanding of the basic principles of project management.
By attending this course participants will be able to: -
- Understand and Manage Project Processes in an effective manner;
- Produce the relevant Project Documents for each stage of the project lifecycle;
- Understand and control the relationship between the individual, team and task;
- Use Monitor & Control mechanisms for effective project tracking;
- Pass the APM Examination.
This course is an intensive 4 day residential workshop, plus a 2 day event the following week. All topics are consolidated by practical exercises, which help the delegates to relate the subject areas to work based scenarios. The week following the course, delegates attend a two day exam workshop, the first day being an intensive examination preparation day, the second being the actual APMP Examination.
Delegates should be advised that they will be required to undertake individual assignments during the course and between the course and the examination workshop.
Delegates will receive a comprehensive handbook, a copy of the APM Body of Knowledge, and APMP Syllabus. Delegates are required to read through the pre-course work thoroughly, to ensure familiarity with the syllabus prior to attending the course.
