Reed Learning LogoThis Introductory Certificate in Project Management is based on the APM Body of Knowledge 5th edition – a concise and structured guide to the knowledge required in managing projects.

It provides a solid introduction to the key issues involved in managing projects and explores core project management tools, techniques and terminology.


Who should attend?

The APM Introductory Certificate In Project Management is an intensive course designed for all project personnel including new project managers, project team members and project support staff who require an understanding of the fundamentals of project management.

However, pre-read documentation is provided before the course and it is essential that delegates complete all of the recommended self-study prior to attending the event.
