MSP Managing Successful Programmes

MSP® Qualifications

MSP Training 4.9 out of 5 based on 2325 ratings.


The Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) training helps you to provide and maintain a strategic view over a set of projects. It enables you to align and co-ordinate projects within a programme of business change so that you can effectively support specific business strategies. The programme management training provides the framework for implementing business strategies and initiatives. It also supports large scale change where there is a “vision” of the programme’s outcome to transform an organisation. See the list below for the MSP training courses available at SPOCE.

MSP Foundation Certificate

MSP foundation level measures whether a candidate is able to act as an informed member of a programme management team using the MSP methods in a programming environment.

MSP Practitioner Certificate

The MSP practitioner level measures whether a candidate can apply MSP to the running and managing of a non-complex programme within an environment supporting MSP.

MSP Re-Registration (Practitioner)

The re-registration exam should be taken by MSP practitioners who have 3-5 years of their original certification period underway to demonstrate their recency of knowledge and commitment to continuing professional development.

Re-registration applies to ‘Practitioner’ and ‘Advanced Practitioner’ levels.

MSP Advanced Practitioner

The MSP Advanced Practitioner level is intended for anyone in or aspiring to a senior role within a programme. It teaches them to demonstrate their competence and apply their MSP knowledge to a complex programme.
