About the course

Available via virtual classroom delivery or face to face for closed course group bookings – please call 0117 949 1500 for details or contact us via the Enquiry Form. Our next open course date is w/c 19th September 2022.

The APMG International Change Management course has been developed by APMG in partnership with the Change Management Institute to help organisations and their staff successfully manage the impact of change.

The course content is based upon the 13 ‘knowledge areas’ of the Change Management Institute’s Change Management Body of Knowledge as reflected in The Effective Change Manager’s Handbook.

It is designed to help you understand effective leadership and management throughout change activities aligned to supporting individuals, teams and organisations, specifically focusing on change management practices including communications and stakeholder management.

Our highly regarded Practitioner and Integrated courses are structured so that the Practitioner exam is taken in the classroom directly after the training element (as per Foundation but at the end of the week). We prefer this approach to the post course online exam booking system as it ensures that the course content is fresh in the mind and enables delegates to leave having completed both the course and examination.

*BMC are proud to have maintained pass rates of 99% at Foundation and 100% at Practitioner level over the last two years! (2021-22)*

June 2021 (virtual) – “I found the course very engaging, even in the digital environment, and I also found it to be exceptionally well run and well organised. The trainer in particular was exceptional. She brought the course content to life by connecting the themes very effectively and by providing background from her experience and the experiences that I and my cohort of trainees had discussed during introductions. This helped to make the content relevant and interesting.”
May 2021 (virtual) – “Just wanted to give a special mention to our trainer Julie – Having had Julie train me on the foundation level of the Change Management course back in 2019, I was really pleased to see she would again be training me on the practitioner level. As trainers go she is an absolute breath of fresh air – She makes courses relatable with real life examples, encourages participation (but not in a daunting way!) and really does make them as engaging as possible, which I can imagine is not easy virtually. This was my first course I have attended virtually and I would have no issue attending future courses online.”
January 2021 (virtual) – “Would recommend to others and advise them to prepare well in advance!”
November 2020 (3) (virtual) – “Julie had bags of energy and enthusiasm which helped to keep me engaged.” “Thank you very much for this week, its been really informative and have learned lots of really great stuff that give a deeper understanding on the human transition associated with change and how I can go about enabling this in a much better way.” “Thanks for a brilliant course – I’ve learnt so much. I wont hesitate recommending it to others and commend Julie on her enthusiasm and energy.”
“Really enjoyed the course, the team (Julie & Megan) were very professional and for my first virtual course, it was run very well and the tempo was well maintained.”
“Well run and it was good to have admin support throughout the programme. The trainer was excellent and really knew her stuff.”
November 2020 (1) (virtual) – “The course trainer was fantastic. Never have I experienced a course with so much energy, passion and knowledge in a particular subject. The course was regimentally structured (big win for me) and I was able to ask challenging questions and receive suitable answers which helped me to understand the often complex subjects.”
July 2020 (virtual)- “Thank you again for a fantastic week, you were all over any issues and really appreciate your support….thanks for a thoroughly enjoyable, awesome week.”
April 2o20 (virtual) – “Julie, absolute legend! Knowledgeable, friendly, professional. Her team was very efficient and pro-active – exceeded my expectations in all areas! Thank you!”
February 2020 – “Very intense however it was delivered in such a way that you learn more than you realise. Julie brought it to life in a very constructive way.”
“Amazing instruction on a difficult subject. Learnt a lot from Julie; very professional and supportive.” “Just to reinforce how much I appreciated your vignettes, patience and room control. There was a lot to cover but you hit just the right notes and tone.”
“Julie was one of the best trainers I’ve ever had, probably the best. She made the course very accessible, fun and easy to digest with lots of variety in her teaching style. And all the while keeping us punctual and structured. Thanks!”
“One of the best trainers I’ve come across – delivered the course in an interactive and engaging way to cement the learning and bring the subject to life with her own experience and that of others on the course.”

Dealing with change and especially individuals’ reactions to it can be fraught with difficulty.

Benefits – organisation?

Change is an inevitable consequence of modern-day organisational life. It may be that there has been a change of management which has new approaches, a change of employment, a new project to be undertaken or perhaps changes in the economic or legal environments in which your organisation operates.

Having well informed team members who can contribute positively on an individual and corporate level is vital. It helps mitigate the risk of failure and therefore avoid operational delays in your organisation, whilst ensuring customer demands continue to be met and building a sustainable business model.
