APMP Graphics Micro-Certification - 24 September 2024

APMP Graphics Micro-Certification - 24 September 2024

APMP Graphics Micro-Certification Online

Clear, compelling, audience-focused graphics improve win rates. They convey information to the audience in a more compelling and easily digestible manner, and they help reach readers both intellectually and emotionally.

If you’re involved in bidding, it’s essential that you understand proposal graphic best practices, so you can elevate your content. Join us to study best practice and prepare to pass APMP’s new Graphics Micro-Certification – the exam fee is included in the course price.

The session is delivered in real-time by a highly experienced proposal designer. There’ll be plenty of opportunity interaction and questions – it’s not a pre-recorded module. It’s suitable for bid / proposal managers, writers, designers, business development professionals and subject matter experts responsible for content creation and graphics development.


Course content

We’ll explore best practices in creating proposal graphics, in line with APMP’s recently updated Body of Knowledge section on this topic, covering content such as:

  • What motivates your audience
  • How design and designers fit into the process
  • Design principles and techniques
  • Industry best practice, including accessibility standards
  • Tools and emerging technologies

We’ll also include a short case study to demonstrate some techniques and some practice exam questions.


How the course works

This session will take place online in Microsoft Teams, and will be led Rachel Fisher CP APMP, a graphic designer with over 20 years’ experience. Rachel will be supported by Jon Williams CPP APMP Fellow – one of the world’s most experienced APMP Approved Trainers.

Once you’ve registered, you’ll be sent a calendar invitation with the link to the course. You’ll also be sent a copy of the course slides.

Please note that there are no pre-requisites for attending this course, other than to be an APMP member.
