P3o certification

Attending a P3O training course is the quickest route to getting P3O certification. P3O is the best management practice approach to the management of Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3O) from AXELOS.

Who should attend a P3O training course?

P3O training courses are ideal if you are a project or programme professional wanting to develop your career in the growing field of portfolio, programme and project management offices.

Attending a P3O course will help you gain the knowledge required to design, implement, manage or work within any component P3O office. P3O training will also help you understand the elements, roles, functions and tools and techniques deployed in a generalized P3O model.

P3O course and exams

A P3O course combines both the Foundation and Practitioner certifications over a 4.5 day training course. The P3O Foundation exam takes place on the morning of day 4, and the P3O Practitioner exam takes place on the morning of day 5. There is homework of approximately 2 hours per night.

P3O training consists of the following topics.

  • Introduction to P3O;
  • Why have a P3O;
  • Designing a P3O model;
