Course overview

About the course

The e-learning combines multiple voices, animation and interactive exercises, providing training at a time, pace and location to suit your individual requirements. 

The classroom workshop builds upon the e-learning element. You will have access to an expert who will prepare you fully to attempt the examination which is taken on the afternoon of the final day. Ample time is allowed within the workshop for attempting sample questions and feedback.

This product is aligned to The APM Body of Knowledge 6th Edition.

Important Information

By the time you attend this course you should have attempted questions relating to all the subjects covered in the digital learning. You must complete the e-learning in full prior to attending the workshop. If you have not completed all of the sessions in the digital learning then the exam will be much more difficult as there will not be time to review these subjects during the course. The APM recommend between 70-80 hours preparation for the exam, the e-learning module is designed to take approx 20 hours to complete. The workshop will account some of the balance, but you will still be required to commit time to prepare for the exam. In order to prepare sufficiently for the course you will need to spend between one and two hours per day working on the digital learning and sample questions in the weeks/ months prior to the course.
