MSP Advanced Practitioner Course and Certification

The MSP® Advanced Practitioner Training provides an opportunity to apply the concepts of MSP to a suitable scenario and develop the ability to adapt and apply the approach to a set of circumstances described in a complex case study. It also prepares participants for the MSP Advanced Practitioner examination.

This level aiming to confirm that a candidate could lead a programme of transformational change. That is, someone capable of applying the MSP guidance in a complex programme within an environment that uses MSP.

The MSP Advanced 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, and is very detailed with the focus on scenarios. Exercises will be based on a case study with a similar format to that used in the APM Group Advanced Practitioner exam. This case study will be used to test the thorough understanding of the application of MSP.
