Program Management Practitioner Course and Certification

The MSP® Practitioner Training provides an opportunity to learn how MSP can be applied to real live programmes and prepares participants for the MSP Practitioner examination.

This level aims to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSP guidance to act as an informed member of a programme management team. That is, someone responsible for managing, leading, supporting or advising on work within an MSP environment.

The MSP Practitioner is a two day classroom-based course, mainly aimed at Programme Managers, experienced Project Managers, Programme Support Team members and Senior Managers from any discipline. The course is entirely focused at applying MSP in programme scenarios. Exercises will be based on a case study with a similar format to that used in the APM Group Practitioner Exam. This case study will be used to test the thorough understanding of the application of MSP.
