APMG-International Managing Benefits™ Foundation Virtual

Be part of the class with our virtual courses – all the benefits of classroom learning, but with the flexibility of working from home.

Course overview

About the course

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.

The Foundation level aims to measure whether you understand the principles, practices, techniques, roles, responsibilities and documents of benefits management. 

What is virtual classroom training?

ILX’s virtual instructor-led training combines the personal teaching experience of a classroom, with the ease and flexibility of a virtual environment. Our virtual courses are interactive and engaging, allowing participants to communicate with both the instructor and each other in a collaborative manner.
