Practitioners not only have shown extensive knowledge of best practices, but also have demonstrated against global standards that they can both apply them individually and lead teams in their use.
To earn Practitioner Certification, you must:
APMP offers an easy-to-follow online training program specifically designed to help you complete the PPAQ. The tutorial is available over the web, 24x7, so participants can work through the PPAQ at their own pace.
The tutorial has 10 detailed chapters that guide you through the entire process from preparing your PPAQ, to submitting your PPAQ online. Start with your most comfortable competencies identified in a self-assessment and then tackle more challenging competencies as you master the approach. See example competency responses and hear how to handle the challenging areas. You will receive on-going support from the Director of Certification and Mentors. Expect to spend 15 to 20 hours completing the questionnaire if you carefully follow the instructions in the Tutorial. You may also choose not to take the tutorial and work through the PPAQ alone.
The programme uses a process of examination and competency-based assessment, which is consistent and measured against world best practice standards.
