Why Blended Learning?
ILX combines interactive computer based training courses with intensive workshops which have been proven to significantly increase pass rates and students’ confidence in the subject matter.
Taking time out of the office for most people is difficult which is why this solution works extremely well. The initial part of the learning process is achieved by using a computer based approach with interactive CD-ROM. Each delegate is able to progress at his/her own pace on an individual basis and repeat sessions where necessary to obtain a better understanding.
The second part of the learning process is tutor led in a short but intensive workshop. This enables delegates to consolidate and extend their understanding of the fundamental principles of the subject.
What Have Others Said About The Course?
The course was exceptionally challenging but rewarding. I completed PRINCE2 as it was the most accepted qualification for Project Management however Iím so glad I choose to do the APM Project Management for PRINCE2 Practitioners course. As with PRINCE2 course which I also did with ILX, the organisation, materials, tutoring and structure was faultless.
PRINCE2 provides a methodology but the APM Project Management course gives you the tools to implement and tailor it to fit your industry and the project in hand. I personally feel that the two courses together give a student a broad and comprehensive knowledge of Project Management as a whole. The blended course allows PRINCE2 professionals to gain the APM Project Management by complementing their prior knowledge without duplication."
