About the Program
This workshop is aimed at those candidates who have demonstrated sufficient project management knowledge and experience to attend an APM Practitioner Qualification (PQ) Assessment. As prior knowledge and experience is assumed, this workshop will not provide any topical project management training. It will, however, provide candidates with a clear understanding of the assessment process they are about to enter. Candidates should ideally attend the briefing workshop 4-6 weeks prior to attending the assessment centre.

Who Should Attend
This workshop is appropriate for those who are planning to attend an APM Practitioner Qualification (PQ) Assessment. The workshop will be facilitated by an experienced PQ Assessor.
