Additional Information

Course pre-reading and preparation

Whilst there is no prescribed reading list for the qualification, it is assumed that delegates are familiar with Office of Government Commerce (OGC) Best Practice Guidance together with any internal Project and Programme Management framework used by their organisation.  

Accreditations and exams
All delegates will be given the opportunity to sit the MoP™ Practitioner examination in the afternoon of the second day of the course. The MoP™ Practitioner exam consists of:

  • 80 multiple choice questions
  • 3 hours
  • open-book
  • Candidates require a minimum of 40 correct answers (50%) to pass.

Practical details
Delegates must bring photographic identification with them on exam days (passport, driving license, or works pass) as it is an examination requirement to produce it for the invigilator prior to the exam. Failure to produce a valid form of photographic identification may result in a candidate not being able to sit the exams.

Additional work will be required during evenings consisting of consolidation reading and a mock examination. This evening work is an integral part of the course and delegates should expect to spend 2 hours in the evening on these activities.

The fee does not include residential costs. Residential courses are normally held in Bournemouth.
