The Praxis Framework™ is a combination of four types of best practice guidance; Knowledge, Method, Competency and Capability and is the first framework to integrate projects, programmes and portfolios in a single guide.

This Praxis Bridging course has been designed to help candidates understand the Praxis Project and Programme Processes and how to apply and tailor the Praxis Management (P3M) functions and the interpersonal skills required of a P3 manager to the complexity of a given scenario. It provides a bridge to the Practitioner level qualification.

The PRINCE2 Practitioner, MSP Practitioner or APM PMQ is a pre-requisite for candidates attending this course.

Pre-Course Reading

You will be provided with QA's pre-course workbook that will help you prepare for the course. The pre-course work is expected to take approximately three hours to complete (although delegates may wish to spend longer on this activity to help them prepare more effectively)

Proof of identification

If taking an exam, candidates are required to provide Photo ID with a valid signature e.g. driving license, passport or named work ID badges prior to sitting their exam. Failure to produce this ID will result in their exam results being withheld until proof of ID is provided.
