MSP® Advanced Practitioner
2 day course
This course is designed for managers who have gained the MSP Practitioner qualification and who wish to go on and gain the prestigious Advanced Practitioner qualification.
The course will build on the understanding you have already gained of MSP and help you to apply and interpret MSP Principles against a realistic programme scenario. The course is ‘beyond application’ into areas of interpretation and judgement that programme directors and managers have to use all the time.
WHY SHOULD I TAKE THIS COURSE?
If you want to gain a recognition of your ability to manage programmes in the real world, then this course is for you. The Advanced Practitioner qualification has only been achieved by a limited number of people, and so success at this level will set you apart in the field of programme management.This course is based upon the 3rd edition of MSP that pearcemayfield helped to author.
It is designed for practising programme managers, programme directors, senior responsible officers, programme office staff, and change managers, who wish to gain further recognition of their skills after taking the MSP Practitioner examination.
You must have taken your MSP Foundation and Practitioner examinations, but may be taken before you know your MSP Practitioner Examination results.

• Demonstrate discernment and judgement of critical programme information
• Take a broad integrative view of the health and management of a programme
