MoP Foundation Course and Certification

The MoP® Foundation Course covers the entire syllabus of MoP Foundation level and prepares participants for the MoP Foundation Examination. This level aims to measure whether a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding to work as an informed member of a Portfolio Office or in a range of portfolio management roles.
To this end they need to show they understand the principles and terminology of the guide.

The MoP Foundation is a three day course, delivered as a classroom event and is designed for people who require a general level of MoP understanding. The training provides knowledge about the principles, cycles, practices, techniques, roles, responsibilities, documents and organizational context within which portfolio management operates.

“The MoP training provided by QRP, with Jeff Ball, was very effective, many exercises and practical examples have enabled us to understand the exam with confidence. Many valuable tips to prepare for certification were issued. In addition Jeff has demonstrated great flexibility and was able to tailor the course based on my availability disturbed by the imponderables of air transport.”

Vincent Coustillac

Consultant @ Net’sFive, France

“I am very satisfied with QRP International training services in relation to MoP Foundation and Practitioner in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was well-planned and well-executed. I appreciated the service-minded attention to ensure that training material was received in time, and not least the mid-ways informal quality control visit during the course to ensure that the course was on track and that it was going as expected. Thank you.”

All trainers are of high quality and not only do they know the content of the courses but they are also able to share their great experiences and support the theory with practical cases.
