MoP® Foundation Course
(2 days) Virtual

Interested in becoming MoP® certified?


Management of Portfolios (MoP®) is a fully accredited course in Portfolio Management suitable for organisations of all sizes and levels of complexity in both the public and private sector.

MoP will enable a more balanced approach to portfolios as an organisation’s investment changes, which will enable strategic objectives to be achieved 

This certification is aimed at those involved in a range of formal and informal portfolio management roles encompassing investment decision making, project and programme delivery, and benefits realisation. It is relevant to individuals involved in the selection and delivery of business change initiatives.

The MoP® certification scheme has been developed to offer two levels of certification, Foundation and Practitioner. 

The purpose of the Foundation certification is to confirm that students have sufficient knowledge and understanding to work as an informed member of a Portfolio Office or in a range of portfolio management roles.

The purpose of the Practitioner certification is to confirm whether students have achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor the MoP guidance and to analyse portfolio data, documentation and roles in relation to a scenario situation.
