APP preparation

DutchRisk offers various programs to optimally prepare candidates for the APP exam.

Candidates may choose between an APP preparation program of 4 months,

an APP bootcamp of 3 days or a tailor-made in-company preparation program

CPP preparation program.

APP preparation program

Our APP preparation program consists of 4 days, spread over approximately 3 months:

We start with two consecutive review days. During these days, we cover all four APP domains

with the help of the recommended study materials, supplemented with additional

background information, practical examples and practice questions.

Following the review days - approximately 6 weeks later - is a coaching day aimed at

reinforcing knowledge and guiding participants during their study period.

The final day of the program - another 6 weeks later - is an exam training aimed at rehearsal

for the exam. Candidates are encouraged to take the exam as soon as possible after the exam

training - preferably the following day.

Tussen de reviewdagen en de examentraining bieden we virtuele Q&A sessies om onze

coach our participants during their study.

Thanks to our structured approach, participants can start studying efficiently right after

the first two review days.


APP bootcamp

Our APP bootcamp consists of 4 consecutive days after which candidates are encouraged

encouraged to take the exam.

During the first two days, we cover all four APP domains with the help of the recommended

study material, supplemented by additional background information, practical examples

and practice questions. A day of exam training - aimed as a rehearsal and preparation for the

exam - closes the program.

Candidates are expected to read the recommended study material before the start

of the bootcamp.

In-company APP preparation program

Our in-company APP preparation programs are always tailor-made.

Therefore, please contact us for a proposal based on your needs.

Virtual or on location?

We prefer to physically conduct our preparation programs at a (relaxing) location as this promotes interaction. But all programs are also available virtually or in a blended-learning format.
