NEW DATE! APMP Foundation Level Certification Training Class | January 20, 2023
Lohfeld Consulting Group and the APMP Chesapeake Chapter are offering a 1-day webinar to prepare attendees to pass the APMP Foundation Certification. APMP offers the only professional certification program for those working in a bid and proposal environment.
Date: January 20, 2022
Location: LIVE, INSTRUCTOR-LED WEBINAR
This Lohfeld Consulting Group course trains students for the refreshed Foundation exam based on the APMP Body of Knowledge (BoK). The competencies are classified into five groups: sales orientation, information research and management, planning development, and management. The course explains best practices for implementing the competencies and provides constructive exercises and practice test questions.
Class will be conducted via a live webinar. Prior to training, you will receive a link to access the webinar. On the day of the training, you will join the Zoom to view the course slides and hear the instructor’s presentation. During class you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in exercises to prepare you for the exam.
We recommend taking the exam online immediately after the webinar, but you can take it any time that works best for you.
The exam is a 1-hour multiple choice, pass-fail, open book exam with 75 questions. Attendees must register for the online exam separately (here) – be sure to select the “APMP Foundation 2015” exam.
