As the only APMP ATO (Accredited Training Organisation) in Australia and the Asia Pacific region, BidWrite’s Bid Academy offers best practice workshops that will prepare you to sit (and pass) an APMP certification assessment.

Delivered online over two consecutive half-days, this training workshop guides candidates through the approved best-practice syllabus to help you prepare for the APMP Foundation level examination. Suitable for proposal professionals with 1 to 3 years of bidding experience seeking formal recognition of their knowledge and skills.

Delivered online over 3.5-hours, this workshop prepares candidates for the APMP Practitioner Objective Testing Examination (OTE), providing guidance on what to expect, a practice scenario and practice questions to demonstrate key points. Suitable for proposal professionals with 3 to 7 years of bidding experience who hold APMP Foundation certification.

Professional is the highest level of APMP certification, held by only a handful of individuals around the world.
