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.

You'll also learn to:

  • Deliver projects and programmes successfully using the Praxis framework.
  • 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.

If you're a current or aspiring project and programme manager, this course is ideal for you. This course is also suitable for those involved in designing, developing and delivering projects, programmes and portfolios including:

  • Project Board members
  • Programme Sponsors
  • Business Change Managers
  • Team Managers
  • Project and Programme Assurance
  • Administrative Support

Note: Firebrand Training is currently in the process of re-accreditation with APMG.
