Project Fundamentals Qualification – in-house options

Why study Project Management? – see Andrew Drury’s blog on this subject here


As well as the standard 2-day format for this course, we can run it in 3-day or 4-day formats.



All formats cover the PFQ syllabus topics, but the 3-day and 4-day formats allow greater time for interactive discussions and practical exercises to embed the theory into operational practice. This has two benefits:

  • it deepens the delegates understanding of the project management topics, and how they inter-relate, enhancing their performance in the exam;
  • it demonstrates practical application of key topics, to make it easier for delegates to use what they have learned in the day job – resulting in a faster improvement in performance.

Where the client wants to maximise the speed and effectiveness of their staff being able to use the project management tools and techniques they have learned, the 4-day format is most appropriate. Where limiting  time out of the office is the most important criterion, the 2-day format is best, although the client will not secure the operational benefits so quickly. The 3-day format is the classic compromise.

Delivery Mode

The courses are normally delivered in one go.

The 4-day format is often delivered in 2 x 2-day sessions, but we strongly recommend that there is no more than two weeks between them.

Course Fees

2-day format: £395 per delegate (subject to a minimum charge of £2,370 i.e. 6 people).

3-day format: £395 per delegate (subject to a minimum charge of £2,370) plus £695.

4-day format: £395 per delegate (subject to a minimum charge of £2,370) plus £1390.

PLEASE NOTE 1: The in-house training figures are course fees only. Expenses and VAT are in addition. The main expenses are the APM exam fees and study guides (approx £180 per delegate) plus travel and accommodation etc.

PLEASE NOTE 2: We try to ensure that in-house course material meets your particular requirements. We can tailor course content without charge if it means using already-prepared material from other courses. However, if you require new material to be authored, we will confirm the cost of that tailoring, as part of our quote for you.

PLEASE NOTE 3: We are happy to absorb travelling time of approximately 2 hours each way, but will need to charge if the travelling time encroaches into working time. Again, we will identify this cost in our quote, so that the position is clear before you decide whether to commission us.

PLEASE NOTE 4: If you don’t have enough in-house people to make an On-Demand course cost-effective, we are happy to run a mixed On-Demand / Open course in your offices for you, to which other local colleagues can be invited. It reduces your costs significantly. If this idea is appealing, please ask for a quote
