How long should I study for?

To complete the Foundation level, around 20 hours should be committed to the learning.  Practitioner level requires approximately 35-40 hours of self-study.  This study will be a mixture of computer-based training using the e-Learning, reference to the MSP Manual and other documentation, and completion of the Practical Tasks.  Depending on other commitments, you will require anything from 4 weeks to 6 months to complete this learning.

Purchasing this product provides you with a license to use MSP Passport for a period of 6 months from the date of purchase.  During this period the product is supported to ensure that the content is consistent with the APM Group syllabus.  Associated Foundation and Practitioner Exams are valid for the licence period.

If you find that time passes by more quickly than you thought, then you can extend the license and exam time as follows:

  • 7-day License Extension - £49 + VAT
  • 3-month License Extension - £99 + VAT
  • 6-month License Extension - £149 + VAT

It is advisable to identify a date for completion of the self study to help focus on completion.  Revision events and Exam dates are available by clicking the "Exam Dates" tab above. The timetable for these events can be viewed on the same page. In any case, you will need to confirm your exam date with SPOCE a minimum of 3 weeks prior to the chosen date.  Failure to attend your confirmed exam event may result in transfer charges being applied (see Terms & Conditions).
