APMG Managing Benefits Foundation & Practitioner Course in Gateshead

Course Overview

Managing Benefits consolidates existing guidance on benefits management into one place, while expanding on the specific practices and techniques aimed at optimising benefits realisation.

Throughout the Foundation training course, you will learn the benefits management principles, practices, techniques, roles, and documents.

The Practitioner training will build on what you have learnt at Foundation level and teach you how to apply and tailor the managing benefits guidance in a scenario situation.

While this training package is the best way to study both the Foundation and Practitioner levels, you can take these courses individually, through our APMG Managing Benefits Foundation training and APMG Managing Benefits Practitioner training.
