Achieve two MSP® certifications in just 3 days on this official AXELOS course. MSP is the most widely used qualification for programme management, and you’ll accelerate through both the Foundation and Practitioner levels on this course.

In just 3 days, you’ll become an expert in frameworks for implementing business strategies and initiatives. Across 3 days, you’ll also study:

  • Organisational leadership
  • Stakeholder management
  • Quality management

At the end of this accelerated MSP course, you’ll sit the following exams covered by your Certification Guarantee:

  • MSP® Foundation 5th Edition
  • MSP® Practitioner 5th Edition

Start your programme management journey in a distraction-free environment and learn at twice the speed through Firebrand's Lecture | Lab | Review methodology.

Seven reasons why you should sit your course with Firebrand Training

  1. Two options of training. Choose between residential classroom-based, or online courses
  2. You'll be certified in just 3 days. With us, you’ll be trained in record time
  3. Our course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  4. Pass 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
  5. You’ll learn more. A day with a traditional training provider generally runs from 9am – 5pm, with a nice long break for lunch. With Firebrand Training you’ll get at least 12 hours/day quality learning time, with your instructor
  6. You’ll learn faster. Chances are, you’ll have a different learning style to those around you. We combine visual, auditory and tactile styles to deliver the material in a way that ensures you will learn faster and more easily
  7. You’ll be studying with the best. We’ve been named in Training Industry’s “Top 20 IT Training Companies of the Year” every year since 2010. As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 102637 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business

"The 5 days MSP training with the foundation, practitioner and advanced practitioner examinations is a demanding but great learning experience. The Firebrand trainer knows to keep a perfect balance between the theory, real life examples and experiences as well as preparation tips for the certification exams, which ensures a high certification rate (and thus a great return on the investment)"
G.H. . (3/7/2017 (Monday) to 7/7/2017 (Friday))

"The training is very intense but also very interesting. Preparation is needed but the trainer was very competent and knowledgeable, truly helping candidates to reach the required level of knowledge and comprehension. The trainers hands on experience also helps a lot as he gives real life illustrations of MSP concepts."
François D., Capgemini. (3/7/2017 (Monday) to 7/7/2017 (Friday))

"Overall good experience. This is truly fast track learning, so be prepared to do an extra effort. Ensure you have completed pre-study (if required) before you attend, or it will be difficult to keep up. Enjoy!"
