AFA MSP trainers have undergone the rigorous approvals process, administered by APMG on behalf of OGC. They have are practising programme managers with considerable experience in a wide range of industry sectors, and played a leading role during the writing of the MSP manual, and during its recent update. The insights gained during that process have proved invaluable during development and upgrading of the AFA course material.
This is a five-day event including optional MSP Foundation, Intermediate and Practitioner exams.
