P3O (PMO) Practitioner Course and Exam

The P3O® Practitioner Course provides an opportunity to apply the concepts of the P3O guidance to a scenario and prepares participants for the P3O Practitioner Examination.

This level aims to measure whether a candidate could manage or work in a component of a P3O. To this end they need to exhibit the knowledge required for the Foundation qualification, and show that they have a full understanding of how to justify, build and manage a P3O.

The P3O Practitioner is two day classroom based course, mainly aimed at (aspiring) Support Office Managers or Directors and is very detailed with the focus on scenarios. Exercises will be based on a case study with a similar format to that used in the APM Group Practitioner Exam. This case study will be used to test the thorough understanding of the application of P3O.

“This QRP training course on P3O provides guidance on how to equip organizations with the structures, services, tools and techniques it needs to ensure consistent successful delivery of programmes and projects across the organization. The main focus is on implementing a P3O as a programme using the MSP methodology. When improving a P3O as a project, problems can arise when the capability is delivered but is not exploited effectively. This is a worthwhile study, but not to be taken lightly.”

“I followed the P3O training course provided by QRP and found exactly what I was looking after since almost 2 years. This training is a perfect complement to PRINCE2 and MSP when you start thinking about establishing a permanent office dealing with strategy and transformation. It has provided me the missing part of the Project Programme and Portfolio Management puzzle and a very good methodology to start engaging with my Senior Management.”
