Organisational Change Management Practitioner Certification Course

Apply the valuable knowledge and techniques you gained in the Organisational Change Management Foundation Certification course to "real world" change processes.


Being able to develop and implement effective change initiatives is paramount to ensuring ongoing business success. “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often”, said Winston Churchill. We are repeatedly made aware of the fact that change is the only constant in business and perfecting the art of change management can be a challenge in any organisation.

This certification course builds on the essentials of Change Management presented in the Organisational Change Management Foundation Certification course. The valuable knowledge base offered with this next course in the program will enable you to apply many proven approaches and techniques to change processes taking place in your organisation.

This course prepares you for the exam leading to the Change Management Practitioner Certification and the Registered Change Management Professional designation through AMPG International.
