Bristol follows London with a sold out RPP roadshow
Posted by APM on 15th Feb 2011
The Bristol APM Registered Project Professional roadshow event has followed Londons lead by selling out. Interestingly, the final few places were booked up on the same day successful candidates from the pilot were presented with their certificates.
Delegates who booked onto a South Wales and West of England and Midlands combined branch event on Tuesday 9th February saw four successful candidates being presented with their certificates. Before hearing Bryan Barrow talk about risk management Martin Gosden, the SWWE chair, presented Rob Boyden, Paul Jenkins, Paul Johnson and Mike Kimmins with their RPP certificates.
At another event being held by on the same day, Martin Gillespie, Chairman of the South East branch, presented Nigel Hayward and Hilary Hinks with their certificates. So far APM havepublicly awarded those who were successful in the first two stages of the pilot, which has been a great way for APM to show their appreciation to those who have helped in establishing the standard. Tony Noakes, who was also at the event in Swanley, Kent, went through the final stage of the pilot. Tony found the whole experience to be very beneficial. He said: Although I had spent considerable time and effort completing my portfolio, I believe the process was very rewarding and beyond doubt the best form of self assessment. Had I been unsuccessful the experience and insight of my credentials was worth every effort and would have been very useful in identifying areas for improvement and development.
