The course syllabus is aligned to the Association for Project Management (APM) Body of Knowledge 6th Edition which offers a balanced view across the many facets that relate to the project management profession.
Additionally, the course draws upon specialist relevant project assurance content such as the APM’s Measures for Assuring Projects and best practices from the Cabinet Office’s Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA), including guidance on the OGC’s Gateway Reviews.
The independent assessment conducted by the APM on this course, assures delegates that the course is unbiased, inclusive, and current, in that it touches on industry trends as well as established ways of working.
It emphasises an approach of ‘learning by doing’, which sees delegates using a case study from end-to-end, enabling the doing of the right projects in the right way, and allowing opportunities to develop certain key soft skills relevant to Project Assurance Practitioners, such as giving and receiving feedback.
The Assurance Practitioner course was designed and developed by recognised Assurance practitioners and is aimed at individuals who have exposure to a P3CM setting (Portfolio, Programme, Project, and Change Management), and want to gain additional knowledge and experience on the discipline of project assurance.
