The new updated Version 7 of our LEARNING IN A BOX® is now available for APM BoK 7th edition and contains some of the most advanced learning material to ensures that you will achieve exam success first time. The box contains everything you need to successfully complete the course without the need to attend lectures.

Contents include study guide, case study, online portal and assessments and full online access. You are also assigned a tutor who will communicate with you over a flexible study period (usually six weeks for PFQ study).

During testing candidates said it was just like the real thing but that you could study in your own time and comfort of your own environment.



We utilise current meetings technology to deliver an optimum learning experience and because each session is recorded, candidates can go back over each of the sessions during revision for the exam. The PFQ course is delivered over a two day period with the exam being sat online by delegates, usually the following (third) day. Each day will contain exactly the same sessions as the classroom version. Candidates will complete tasks and exercises in breakout rooms during the online sessions. Prior to attending the course, candidates will have to have a web enabled camera and will be required to download and use an online meetings app. Full details will be provided prior to attending.
