Change Management Practitioner APMG


Face to face: 2 days (can be combined with the Foundation course as a 5-day package)

Course Overview

APMG’s Change Management Practitioner course provides an internationally recognised Change Management certification. It is fully aligned with the Change Management Institute’s (CMI) Change Management Body of Knowledge (CMBoK).

The Practitioner course provides students with the knowledge and skills to implement change effectively. Following on from the Foundation course (which is a prerequisite), it is beneficial for those who lead, manage or contribute to the facilitation of change within an organisation.

This two (2) day course blends theory with practical activities to aid learning and includes the Practitioner level examination.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the key principles to be learnt by all involved in a change initiative
  • Appreciate the 'project' environment in which change is governed and delivered, and change managed
  • Learn about the organisational 'levers', adoption approaches and reinforcing systems typically used to sustain change, so that it becomes embedded in an organisation.


This course is targeted at those who are employed as:

  • change manager
  • change analyst
  • business improvement officer / manager
  • line manager
  • change consultant
  • change director
  • project manager
  • business analyst
  • supervisor


To undertake the Practitioner exam, the candidate must have successfully undertaken the Foundation course achieving a pass of 50% or more. It is also recommended that the candidate start to pre-read the Effective Change Manager's Handbook.
