Delegates are provided with pre-course reading prior to attending the course. The successful interaction on the course will be enhanced by close attention to the pre-reading materials. It is recommended that candidates spend 15 hours working through the pre-reading.

Throughout the APM Risk Certificate Level 1, delegates will be exposed to numerous examples of examination questions. We will undertake a number of exercises and 'question-and-answer' sessions that will help to consolidate the learning, thereby ensuring that delegates are more than adequately prepared for the final examination.

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.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
