Overview

On this accelerated APM Project Fundamentals course, you’ll gain foundational knowledge and learn the principles and concepts of project management, and how to implement the practice into your business to create a progressive and profitable environment.

In just 1 day, you’ll learn about the different project life cycles, roles and responsibilities within projects and the importance of communication within a project. You’ll also build knowledge in:

  • Leadership and teamwork within a project
  • Project risk and issue management in the context of a project
  • Project scope management, resource scheduling and optimisation in a project

At the end of this course, you’ll sit APM Project Fundamentals exam, and achieve your certification. Through Firebrand’s Lecture | Lab | Review methodology, you’ll get access to courseware, learn from certified instructors, and train in a distraction-free environment.

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 1 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 111,679 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
