Standard Learning Credits for Project Management training and certification

No previous experience required – Very high pass rate – Save 70%

Our team has more than 20 years experience delivering project management training to business, project professionals and those going through resettlement with the ELCAS scheme. As an accredited APM training provider we’d like to encourage more people into the good practice of project management, that includes valuable skills useful in many areas of business and the armed forces. We’ve just completed our first APM Project Fundamentals Qualification course where candidates used their Standard Learning Credits (SLC) to contribute to the cost of training, course materials and exam. The course has been heavily discounted, so with the SLC contribution it means the cost of the course is well within reach. See details below.

This qualification is the first out of four for those wanting to expand their project management prospects to ultimately become a Chartered Project Professional (ChPP).
