The APM Group Ltd (APMG) accredit training organisations and training materials that conform to certain technical and management standards, which have been carefully developed and agreed by the independent Examination Board.
Within these Accredited Training Organisations (ATOs), only Approved Trainers can deliver the accredited courses in PRINCE2. Here, too, technical and management standards apply - in this case International Standard ISO/IEC17024.
APMG's accreditation process means that all ATOs have been assessed in their ability to provide high-quality PRINCE2 training material and to organise and deliver high-quality training courses. All ATOs and Approved Trainers are formally reassessed on a three-yearly cycle as well as being subject to ad hoc monitoring by APMG. Find out more about the requirements for accredited trainers and course providers.
