The Association for Project Management (APM) is the UK’s leading professional body for Project Managers and the largest independent professional body of its kind in Europe. It has over 15,000 individual and 400 corporate members throughout the UK and abroad. Risk management is a distinct and specific area within the APM Body of Knowledge (APM BoK) and a key control function within any project or programme.
All projects contain risks and the effective management of risk can have a significant impact on the success of projects. This course covers the benefits of managing project risks, the principles including the process and its application, organisational and control aspects. The exam syllabus is primarily based on the APM BoK, the APM PRAM Guide, and BS6079 Parts 1 & 3.
