Seminar and Examination Description

Managing Change , and even more so the impact of change, is one of the most important priorities for all Organizations - especially in times of uncertainty.


APMG , one of the largest international accreditation and professional examination organizations in the world, based in Great Britain, has developed a Change Management Certification in collaboration with Change Management Institute , an independent, global organization of change managers.

The material of the certification covers the theory and practical application of change management, including:
  • Change and the individual
  • Change and the organization
  • Communication and stakeholder engagement
  • Change practice

As APMG's Accredited Training Organization , Critical Path organizes both the preparation seminar and the Change Management Foundation certification exam , which is given during the seminar: the aim of the examination is to show the candidate that he / she understands the concepts, terms, principles, models, approaches and roles of Change Management. The exam lasts 40 minutes and consists of 50 multiple choice questions, with a pass mark of 25 questions (50%).
