The MSP Advanced Practitioner Certification is aimed at MSP Practitioners who want to take the next step and demonstrate they can lead a programme of transformational change.
If you want to take the Advanced Practitioner exam before you have obtained the results of your Practitioner exam, you can do so. However, if you pass the Advanced Practitioner and fail the Practitioner exam, you will have to re-sit the Practitioner exam within 24 months. If this is not completed in 24 months you will have to re-sit the Advanced Practitioner exam too.
If you successfully sit the Foundation exam only, you will receive a "Foundation Examination" certificate. If you pass all three exams on the same day, you will receive the "Advanced Practitioner Examination" certificate only, and not any other one.
