The programme will comprise three full day sessions. Content will cover all assessment requirements with six areas of focus being:

- Managing resources
- Risks and increasing capability
Workshops will include a mixture of theoretical input and also case studies and interactive discussion amongst participants. Participants will also be directed to a bank of online resources that will supplement and enhance learning thus preparing them for the written assessment.
