Advanced Project Management Certification: The Kerzner Approach® to Best Practices (APMC®) is for experienced project managers and senior level managers who want to build on expertise, acquire new skills and go beyond PMP® accreditation.
The APMC is a 66-hour certification program that earns you up to 66 PDUs and can be completed within a time period of three and 12 months. Live and fully interactive, APMC courses are led by top instructors and delivered online in our Virtual Classroom. (A customized curriculum can also be delivered to your company in a traditional classroom setting at the location of your choice.)
Comprised of required courses as well as electives, the APMC program lets you choose the project management courses that fit your needs, interests and schedule.
Eligibility and Prerequisites
Participants who wish to enroll in the APMC program need to have at least three years of project management practical experience. They must also have taken IIL’s Project Management Certificate Program: The Kerzner Approach to Project Management Excellence or equivalent.
Participants can waive up to TWO courses (required or elective) if they have taken them within the last one-year period from IIL. Please note participants must first take and pass the post-test to have the course waived. There will be a fee of USD 150 per course for this activity.
Who Should Attend
You should enroll in this program if you want to expand your knowledge by focusing on today’s higher-level strategic project management issues or dive deeper into more complex tactical challenges. This program is ideal if you are a PMP, since all courses in this program earn you PDUs necessary to maintain your certification.
