Overview

A significant characteristic of any project is that it is subject to high degrees of uncertainty which translates to risk. The effective management of risk is recognised as a major factor for success on any project. This two day course covers the benefits of managing project risks, and the principles underpinning effective risk management, including the process and its application, organisational and control aspects.

The exam syllabus is primarily based on the APM BoK, the APM PRAM Guide, and BS6079 Parts 1 and 3The Association for Project Management (APM) is the UK's leading professional body for Project Managers and as such the APM Risk management Qualification is recognised as a valuable asset for any project or programme manager.
