APMG Change Management Courses

Foundation and practitioner level change management training designed to help those charged with effectively planning, implementing, and managing change initiatives in their organisations.


Change management equips organisations to plan, initiate and support organisational change, while change managers help individuals successfully adopt, and adapt to, enterprise change. Effective change management requires an understanding of how business and people experience change and what they need to change successfully.

The online, self-study Change Management foundation and practitioner courses help you to gain the necessary knowledge and skills required to aid successful transition. You can either purchase the foundation level course on its own, or you can purchase the foundation and practitioner level courses together, as a package.

The courses are accredited by APMG International and are based on the Change Management Institute's Change Management Body of Knowledge (CMBoK).
