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 the APMG Accredited Training Organization , Critical Path organizes both the preparation seminar and the Change Management Practitioner certification exam , which is given during the seminar: the aim of the exam is to show that the candidate understands Change Management and can apply his / her principles in an appropriate way in a specific scenario .

This scenario describes the background and current state of an organization that is under change, as well as the change that is underway.

Prerequisite for passing this exam is to have the Change Management Foundation certification. The exam is open-book, lasts 2.5 hours and consists of 4 groups of 20 multiple-choice questions, while the pass mark is 40 questions (50%) .

It is emphasized that all Change Management Practitioners should be re-certified every 3-5 years after initial certification through a brief review.
