Before the course, learners are provided with the official APM PFQ study guide along with a recommended reading list to prepare themselves fully.
The course is divided into 4 x half day sessions. The sessions are interactive and involve immersive activities, helping learners to not only prepare for their exam but also see how project management tools and techniques can be applied back in the workplace.
