APMG Praxis - Foundation & Practitioner

- Only 3 Days

On this accelerated 3 day Praxis - Foundation & Practitioner course, you'll gain the knowledge and skills to implement the Praxis framework to manage projects, programmes and portfolios effectively.

The Praxis Framework integrates the four types of best practice guidelines; knowledge, method, competency and capability into one guide to ensure a common language between all elements of projects, programmes and portfolios. Praxis is the only best practice guide that supports all the elements of the UK Government's Project Delivery Standard.

Your expert instructor will guide you through the foundations of the Praxis framework including procedures, tools and techniques to work effectively as part of a project or programme team.

You'll be immersed in the curriculum through our unique Lecture | Lab | Review technique, which combines theory and practical skills that'll teach you how to apply and tailor Praxis in various scenarios.

  • Understand projects & programme functions as well as the processes and documentation used to manage lifecycle phases.
  • Develop and maintain an effective project delivery infrastructure in a decreased timescale.

On this course, you'll prepare for and take the Praxis Foundation and Praxis Practitioner exams at the Firebrand Training Centre. Don't pass the first time? Don't worry, you'll be covered by our Certification Guarantee.

  1. You'll be Praxis certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be Praxis trained in record time
  2. Our Praxis course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass Praxis first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs

  7. You'll do more than study Firebrand's courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging

  • Intensive group instruction
  • One-on-one instruction attention
  • Hands-on labs

There are several benefits of easy-to-use digital courseware: downloads are immediate, and you’ll always have your courseware available wherever you are.
