APMG-International Managing Benefits™ Foundation & Practitioner classroom

The Managing Benefits framework provides organisations with guidance on how to focus on what measurable benefits they need to deliver to satisfy the strategic objectives of the organisation. This allows them to focus limited resources on the most beneficial activities. The purpose of the Managing Benefits guidance and certification scheme is to provide managers and practitioners from multiple disciplines, working in a variety of organisations, with generally applicable guidance encompassing benefits management principles, practices and techniques.

Course overview

About the course

This course guides you both the foundation and practitioner elements of the Managing Benefits qualification fully preparing you for both examinations which are taken during the course. The foundation level aims to measure whether you have understood the benefits management principles, practices, techniques, roles, responsibilities and documents. Whereas the practitioner level aims to confirm whether you have achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor the guidance in a scenario situation.


This is an intensive five-day course leading to the Managing Benefits Foundation exam on day three and the Practitioner examination on day five.
