Introduction

The Praxis Framework provides guidance on the knowledge, processes, competencies and capability maturity required to manage projects, programmes and portfolios in any environment. This is a combined Foundation and Practitioner level course which is divided into two modules:  One, a 3-day Foundation level which provides students with a solid understanding of the procedures, tools and techniques within the management functions of the Praxis framework. The second, a 2-day Practitioner level is to confirm whether the candidate has achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor Praxis in a scenario situation.

Professional Development Units (PDUs) 35.

Students should receive their courseware two weeks prior to the start date of the course.
