Achieving MSP® Foundation and Practitioner Certification

Duration: 5 Days

MSP® is a best-practice guide from the Home Office, describing a structured approach for managing programmes. It has been developed using the collective expertise and practical experience of some of the leading practitioners in the field. This means that it not only reflects best practice, but is also an accessible, workable technique that has been tested by those working in the real world.

Our MSP® course has been designed and developed to allow delegates to understand and apply MSP not just to pass the exams. We specialize in working with organisations and individuals to understand how MSP works and how to effectively integrate it in to the existing structures and processes of your business or organsiation.

The course follows a two part structure. The first three days of the course involve familiarisation with the content of the MSP® manual, preparing for the Foundation examination. Following successful completion of the Foundation examination, delegates will spend one day preparing for the MSP® Practitioner examination, sitting this examination on the final day of the course.

Course materials are based on the 2011 edition of, “Managing Successful Programmes” and include examinations based on this manual.
