APM Risk Management Certificate Level 2

Course overview

This course builds on the knowledge covered on the risk management Level 1 certificate (a highly recommended pre-requisite) and focuses on the application of that knowledge to a project scenario via a series of exam style questions. This will prepare delegates for the Level 2 exam.

APM Project Risk Management single subject certificate Level 2 is designed to determine an individual’s knowledge, understanding and capability in project risk management sufficient to allow an individual to undertake formal project risk management.
