Based on the positive response from last year, SPAC and APMP are partnering to offer the Practitioner Quick Start Workshop for any APMP member who would like to understand how to complete the Proposal Practitioner Assessment Questionnaire (PPAQ), in preparation for Practitioner level certification.

The Practitioner "Quick Start" Workshop will:

  • Introduce you to the PPAQ requirements
  • Discuss how to use the PPAQ Standards and Guidelines to build your competency self-assessments
  • Provide individual coaching to develop four to six compliant competency self-assessments
  • Describe how to handle some of the more challenging competency areas
  • Offer on-going support to complete their PPAQ.

At the completion of this workshop, members will have completed six to eight of their self-assessment questions and have a clear understanding of how to complete the remainder of their PPAQs within the next four to six weeks.
