This course is designed to equip delegates with the knowledge to pass the nationally recognised APMP qualification. During the course, we cover a wide breadth of project management topics as well as focussing on some really useful hints and tips to help banish those exam nerves.

I create an environment conducive to productive learning where delegates are invited to get involved in the course, far removed from a lecture style. Through this facilitative approach to training, I will help you to understand and utilise some really practical skills when you return to your workplace, as well as giving you the knowledge necessary to pass the exam.
