Course duration: 6 days.
The APMP is the professional qualification awarded by the Association for Project Management.
The focus of this course is to provide you with a level of knowledge that will enhance your personal effectiveness in project management and give you a professional qualification that is recognised worldwide.
The format for this course is to break the APM syllabus up into modules and for delegates to attend the course over a five-week period (one day a week) with the exam taking place on the sixth week.
Between each training day delegates will be set homework to help embed and facilitate their learning.
The syllabus is based upon the Body of Knowledge (BoK). The classroom sessions will include discussions, exercises, and case studies
Given the intensive nature of the syllabus, this modular course will enable delegates to study at their own pace and take responsibility for their own learning.
The examination consists of a three-hour essay style paper.
APMP is a knowledge based qualification. Successful candidates are able to participate in projects from individual assignments through to large capital projects. APMP is a qualification recognized both nationally and internationally that successful candidates can carry from one job to another or from one industry to another.
APMP covers 37 knowledge areas from the APM Body of Knowledge. Knowledge of these areas is considered fundamental to the professional management of projects.
The course is fully accredited and approved by the APM, and Hemsley Fraser is an APM Accredited Training Provider.
Is it right for me?

- Provide organisations with a proven project management methodology that can allow people to plan organise and control the successful implementation of projects.

Week 6 Exam Week
NB the order may be subject to change due to the group needs
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.

The course was great; it enabled the learning to take place over a longer period, which meant that it impinged less on other work/family commitments. I would definitely recommend.
