APMP exam workshop
A professional course delivered by an Accredited Professional trainer, preparing you for your APMP exam.
This course is 2 days long and is aimed at delegates who have a good theoretical grasp of the required elements of the APM's Body of Knowledge but would like to sharpen up on some key topics. This course will then lead to the three hour written essay-based APMP paper. The APMP assesses the candidate's breadth of knowledge in all areas of project management, from strategic and commercial implications, to the technical, organisational, and people management skills required to participate effectively within a project team. The course is not residential but accommodation can be arranged if required. The exam can be taken on the day following the course, or could be deferred if preferred.
