Why study this course

» This Practitioner course usually runs consecutively with Change Management Foundation as a five-day Combined course at a reduced price.

» Attending this course immediately after the Foundation course is highly recommended to achieve your best learning outcomes; it will also help to maximise your chances of exam success.

Change comes about in various forms within organisations due to many factors including projects, team restructuring, business analysis identifying different ways of working, company mergers, and outsourcing. No matter how big or small, they all need to be facilitated with Change Management to ensure a successful result.

The purpose of the APMG Change Management Practitioner course is to ensure a student has sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor Change Management guidance in a given organisational change situation. Upon completion of the course a student should, with suitable direction be able to start applying the Change Management approaches and techniques to a real change initiative. Their individual Change Management expertise, complexity of the change initiative and the support provided for the use of Change Management approaches in their work environment will all be factors in the Practitioners success.

This course pricing includes a voucher for the Change Management Practitioner Exam which can be taken via remote proctor. A practice exam paper is provided in the course, and reviewed to assist in preparation. The exam is:

  • 2.5 hours

  • Objective testing multiple-choice questions

  • Open book (The Effective Change Manager’s Handbook and the Candidate Guide to Examinable Text only)

  • Requires 50% pass to attain certification

It is highly recommended that you spend some time each evening of this course reviewing and consolidating what you’ve learned, to be well prepared for the exam.
