How does an APM training course work?
We offer both individual and group courses, so you can choose the best APM training course to fit your personal needs or organisational requirements.
Training can be completed on-site or virtually to ensure the course works around you and your diary. For on-site exams that are paper based we can arrange for an invigilator. If you are taking the exam online you will need to be sure that you have a working webcam.
If you complete the APM course successfully you will receive your APM qualification and ultimately work towards the coveted ChPP accreditation.
How can I get an APM certification?
There are multiple options available for you to undertake an APM course with Training ByteSize. Our online courses are incredibly engaging and use a mix of audio, film, animation, pictures and diagrams; this ensures they are suitable for all types of learners from visual to auditory.
Classroom courses, either face to face or virtual, are great for kinesthetic learners and those who want to engage with the trainer and other students. The learning is intense and therefore perfect for those wanting to quickly build their skills and achieve certification.
Blended learning is a hybrid option which combines these two learning styles, enabling you to prepare for the course with online learning, then cover major topics and themes with the trainer in a classroom setting.
If you are looking to train a team of people, you’ll find that our onsite training is a viable and cost effective option for you. If you would like to find out more about this option please call our team on +44 (0)1270 626330 or chat to us now using the icon on the bottom right of your screen.
