APMG Change Management Foundation & Practitioner


Course Overview

Change Management skills are required to help prepare, equip and support individuals to make changes at work successfully, and to provide a structured approach to supporting team members in moving from their current state to a future state, as required.

Change Managers have become very important to organisations over the years, resulting in a growing demand for qualified and experienced change practitioners.

We include the Change Management manual with this training course.

This APMG Change Management training will teach you how to:

  • Unlock resistance to change.
  • Provide effective support and motivation to individuals and teams to embrace change.
  • Draw from a range of professional approaches to implement change smoothly and effectively.
  • Manage and inform key stakeholders throughout the change process.
  • Speed up the implementation of change initiatives.

This Virtual Classroom training course lasts for 4-days, and your professional trainer, will not only instruct you but also provide answers to questions along the way.

While this training package is the best way to study both the Foundation and Practitioner levels, you can take these courses individually through our APMG Change Management Foundation training and APMG Change Management Practitioner training.
