New MSC Study Guide for the Introductory Certificate

15 Oct 2015

A new Study Guide for the Introductory Certificate - The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification has been completed. It is based on the APM Body of Knowledge 6th edition and accompanies both training sessions and distance learning.

A proven and up-to-date Study Guide for the Introductory Certificate - The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification; it is based on the APM Body of Knowledge 6th edition (BoK6). In regular use by the Management Skills Centre (an APM Accredited Training Provider) to accompany both training sessions and distance learning. The Guide contains twenty five chapters and covers all topics in the syllabus.

The Study Guide reflects the change of emphasis expounded in BoK6; the re-definition of Project Management as Project, Programme and Portfolio Management (or P3 Management). This encourages an increased focus in the Study Guide on the project benefits - the main reasons for carrying out a project. This is seen most clearly in the basic business case, which must contain estimates of both costs and benefits together with uncertainties in these estimates - these uncertainties are derived from analysis of the risks.

Many examples are included to demonstrate the relevance and application of the concepts. Sixty APM sample questions are included to help prepare for the one-hour multiple-choice examination, which may be taken on-line.
