Overview

This five-day intensive course provides delegates with comprehensive training to prepare them for the APMP examination (based on the APM Body of Knowledge, 6th Edition).

Audience

  • Extensive examination practice and feedback is included in the workshop. The APMP examination is normally scheduled for 13:00 on the final day of the course and consists of:
  • 10 essay based questions to be selected from a total of 16. Each worth 50 marks
  • 3 hours duration
  • Closed-book event
  • Candidates require a minimum of 275 marks out of 500 (55%) to pass
  • Delegates are advised to undertake some revision work in the evening to prepare for the APMP examination on the final day of the course. The additional work required during evenings will consist of consolidation reading and mock examination questions. The evening work is an integral part of the course and delegates should expect to spend 2-3 hours each evening on these activities
  • By successfully passing the APMP examination candidates can choose to further develop their knowledge and understanding by attending the APMPQ Assessment Centre. 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.
  • APM qualifications are aligned to the International Project Management Association (IPMA) competency levels, and the APMP qualification is recognised as IPMA Level D.
  • The exam fee is not included in the cost of the APMP course. Those wishing to take the APMP examination must also book on course code APMPEX-5

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
