P3O Combi Course

The P3O Combi training includes BOTH the Foundation and the Practitioner certifications. Both the P3O Foundation exam and the P3O Practitioner exam are included. Candidates can benefit from a reduction of 15% on the total price by choosing the Combi training.

The P3O Combi course consists of two courses: the P3O Foundation and the P3O Practitioner course.

P3O Foundation aims to confirm that a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the P3O guidance to interact effectively with, or act as an informed member of, an office within a P3O model.

The P3O Practitioner certification confirms whether a candidate can design, implement, manage or work within any component office of a P3O model.
