The course is intensive and therefore delegates are also advised to undertake some revision work in the evening to prepare for the APMP examination that can be taken at the end of the course. The additional work required during evenings will consist of consolidation reading and mock examination questions. The evening work is an integral part of the course and delegates should expect to spend up to 3 hours each evening on these activities.

Delegates can choose to sit the APMP examination at around 13:00 on the final day of the course. The examination consists of:

  • 10 essay based questions to be selected from a total of 16. Each worth 50 marks
  • 3 hours
  • Closed-book
  • Candidates require a minimum of 275 marks out of 500 (55%) to pass

This course provides delegates with comprehensive training to prepare them for the APMP examination (based on the APM Body of Knowledge, 5th Edition). It will enable delegates to

  • Understand all elements of the APMP syllabus
  • Get to grips with the specific examination language
  • Learn strategies and tactics for approaching the examination. Extensive examination practice and feedback is included in the workshop.

Delegates may choose to sit the APMP examination on the last afternoon of the course or at a later date.

Those wishing to take the APMP examination must also book on course code APMPEX-5 (or APMPEXR-5 if re-sitting the examination).
