CSK Management GmbH has become our latest APMP Approved Training Organization (ATO). The Swiss-based firm becomes the sixth ATO authorized to offer APMP-Foundation™ Level training, and will concentrate their efforts on the European market.

CSK Management has experience in serving Europe with proposal and bid management training products for the commercial and government markets. With offices in Zurich and Munich, CSK has been the pioneer for proposal management in the German speaking countries including Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. By offering training and consulting services in both English and German, and by promoting APMP’s DACH Chapter, CSK is committed to increasing professionalism in all sectors.

"This appointment is important because Europe is a leading market in accreditation training and there is a pent-up demand for APMP accreditation at all levels,” said Rick Harris, APMP Executive Director. "CSK Management was instrumental in the creation of APMP’s DACH Chapter and has consistently demonstrated its commitment to industry best practices.”

All prospective ATOs must go through an exhaustive approval process to ensure they meet the high quality course delivery of APMP accreditation standards. The process includes designating a lead trainer, attending and auditing workshops led by APMP’s Chief Examiner, developing course materials that meet APMP accreditation standards and having those materials approved.

"As an Approved Training Organization, we are delighted to promote the APMP Accreditation program throughout Europe, and in particular, the German speaking region. The APMP Accreditation workshops perfectly complement our existing training modules and consulting services around bid and proposal management. APMP Accreditation is a great instrument for companies to advance and professionalize their bid team,” said Christopher Kälin, Managing Partner, CSK Management GmbH.

You can meet CSK Management and the other five APMP ATOs this summer at the 22nd Annual APMP® International Conference & Exhibits, Sheraton Downtown, Denver, Colorado, 31 May 31 - 3 June 2011. For more information about CSK Management, visit their website at or contact Chris at

Congratulation, Chris. This is a big step forward for German speaking countries! Beside that APMP DACH (Germany, Switzerland and Austria) is a very fast growing chapter in Europe, we are only at a early stage compared to the huge market potential in this countries. I hope that this will push additional the acceptance of APMP in this countries.
