About this Bundle

Project management methods, of which PRINCE2® is the paradigm, offer the project manager a tried and tested structure and guidance in support of 'what, when, where and who', with two notable exceptions; PRINCE2® offers very limited guidance on 'why' and 'how', in that there are no detailed project management tools and techniques covered as part of the method. This is the remit of the APMP: The APM Project Management Qualification for PRINCE2® Practitioners course and examination.

APM qualifications are aligned to the International Project Management Association (IPMA) Four-Level-Certification system, where the APMP: The APM Project Management Qualification is recognised at IPMA Level D. This three-day course provides delegates with comprehensive knowledge and understanding to prepare them for the APMP: The APM Project Management Qualification examination. It recognises the prior learning that a PRINCE2® Practitioner has attained by removing from the examinable syllabus, topics that would have already been assessed within the PRINCE2® Practitioner Exam.

Target Audience

This eLearning course is intended for project managers and aspiring project managers with at least two years project experience and who hold a current PRINCE2® Practitioner qualification. Delegates should have experience of working in a project environment and have a basic understanding of project management issues.

Once purchased, the Video Based Learning and associated exam are active for a 12-month period only, you are required to have sat your exam within this timeframe.
