The Benefits of APMP Certification and FREE Practitioner Quick Start Session
Presenter: Charlie Divine, CPP APMP Fellow and Director of APMP Certification
December’s Chapter meeting will feature APMP's Director of Certification Charlie Divine.
In this luncheon, you’ll learn everything you ever wanted to know about APMP certification. The first half of the meeting will consist of a breakdown of all three levels of certification: foundation, practitioner, and professional. Charlie will explain what each designation means, the benefits of certification, and help you determine which level is right for you. A lengthy question and answer period will follow, giving you the opportunity to have your specific questions answered.
The second half will be an optional abbreviated practitioner completion workshop. This is aimed at members who have already received foundation level accreditation, though all attendees are welcome to join. This hands-on workshop will show you how to attack the complex practitioner assessment questionnaire. The agenda is as follows:
11:00-1:00 – Certification overview and lunch
1:00-2:00 – Break
2:00-4:00 – Practitioner completion workshop
* Separate registration is required for each event.
Charlie retired from SBC Communications (now AT&T) in 2000, where he was General Manager of their Proposal Centers worldwide. Prior to joining APMP, he worked with as the Director of Research and Knowledge Management for the Business Development Institute. Considered a global expert on proposal management and business development competencies, Charlie has been an advocate for the value of accreditation for over a decade. He was one of the first members to complete all three levels of certification and has been an active APMP volunteer for over 20 years.
