Change Management Training – APMG Certification

Dealing with change and more importantly, the impact of change is a high priority for all organizations.

The APMG-International Change Management™ course is explicitly designed to help managers, change practitioners and employers define and practice change management successfully and to develop change management maturity within their organizations.

This course offers practical tools, techniques and models to support any change initiative.

/ WHAT IS IT?

The Change Management certification has been developed by APMG-International in partnership with the Change Management Institute (CMI), an independent, global professional association of change managers.

Together they have developed a professional ‘body of knowledge’ for the discipline of change management.

The qualification has Foundation and Practitioner levels.

The new syllabus samples a wide range of knowledge regarding the theory and practice of change management including:

  •  change and the individual
  •  change and the organization
  • communication and stakeholder engagement
  • change practice

/ APPROACH AND DURATION

The change management course presents the whole change process, from idea to implementation. Training is delivered by an experienced and accredited trainer in a constructive, interactive and practical workshop style with team exercises, input sessions and discussions.

Foundation Training & Certification: 3 days

Practitioner Training & Certification: 2 days

Although classroom training is 3 or 5 days, delegates will receive pre-course packs prior to course commencement where pre-reading will be required.

FOUNDATION

The purpose of the Foundation qualification is to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of Change Management to work as a member of a team working on an organisational change initiative. The Foundation certification is also a pre-requisite for the APMG Practitioner certification.

PRACTITIONER

The purpose of the Practitioner certification is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient know-how to lead, apply and tailor Change Management guidance in a given organisational change situation.

A successful Practitioner candidate should be able to apply the Change Management approaches and techniques to any 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 that impact what the Practitioner can achieve. Successful candidates will have fulfilled the knowledge requirements for Change Management Institute accreditation.

The Change Management Certification is an internationally recognised Professional Qualification.
