APMP – Certificate
This course focuses on project management concepts and processes in line with the Association for Project Management (APM). These processes apply to any project that is related directly to business change irrespective of the organisation structure or environment. The content of this course is based entirely upon the APM Body of Knowledge, (APMBoK), which itself represents the topics in which professionals in project management should be knowledgeable and competent.
The training is delivered by a highly experienced APMP certified trainer, 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.
The APMP syllabus covers a wide breadth of topics, from the essential management tools required to monitor and control a project through to the wider context in which the project is being managed in terms of social and environmental issues, finance, organisation, procurement and people management.
All delegates must have a good understanding of the basic principles of project management.
Upon successful completion of this course, delegates will achieve the following:
• Understand and manage projects in an effective manner; • Understand 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 APMP Examination.
This course is a 5 day workshop with an exam on the final day. Topics are consolidated by practical exercises, which help the delegates to relate the subject areas to work based scenarios. Delegates should be advised that they will be required to undertake individual assignments in the form of homework during the course and between the course and the examination workshop.
