Programme Regulations

By registering in the AMPAP courses, you accept and understand the following:


1. General

1.1 All courses include a formal learning evaluation process (i.e. individual and team assignments, and exam).

1.2 For mandatory courses, participants must achieve a final grade of at least 70% in order to pass the course. If a participant’s final grade falls below 70% but is 50% or more, he/she will have the opportunity to take a re-sit exam, the results of which will determine the final grade.

Without limiting the generality of the paragraph above:

a. The re-sit exam will normally be written no later than four weeks from the course end-date; it is the responsibility of the participant to be available for the scheduled exam date and time.
b. The result of the re-sit exam will determine whether the participant achieves a passing grade in the course; (a maximum grade of 70% will be recorded).
c. The participant who is required to take a re-sit exam may be scheduled only once and will receive an “incomplete” grade for a no-show.
d. The participant who is unsuccessful in the re-sit exam or is a no-show will be required to retake the course in full.

1.3 A participant may be deemed to have desisted if he/she is not present at the start of the course for which he/she has registered and could be disallowed to enter the group after a course has begun. The payment will be forfeited and the participant will be required to re-register for another scheduled delivery at a later date.

1.4 At any given course, the participant is required to attend in full. Late arrivals or early departures are strictly disallowed.

1.5 It is the responsibility of the participant to take all necessary measures to overcome any special circumstances that may cause lateness or obstruction to his/her performance. This applies to both face-to-face and online courses. It is the responsibility of the participant to inform the Course Leader or Registrar of any such circumstances that may arise failing which he/she will be considered to have withdrawn and failed the course.

2. Academic Integrity

The primary objective for the AMPAP mandatory courses is for each participant to demonstrate his/her capability in applying the recognized practices and processes that are accepted by the industry and international regulations and which are transmitted and discussed in the course material.

All AMPAP participants are expected to conduct himself/herself ethically and professionally, whether in a face-to-face or online course, with regard to producing material for submission as his/her course work.

2.1. Any form of cheating, plagiarism, impersonation, falsification of a document as well as any other form of dishonest behaviour for the obtainment of academic gain or the avoidance of evaluative exercises committed by a participant is an offence.

2.2. Without limiting the generality of the paragraph above, academic offences include, but are not restricted to, the carrying out or attempting to carry out or participating in:

a. impersonation — assuming the identity of another person or having another person assume one’s own identity;
b. plagiarism — the presentation of the work of another person as one’s own or without proper acknowledgement;
c. the contribution by one participant to another participant of work with the knowledge that the latter may submit the work in part or in whole as his or her own; this does not encourage the participant to develop/his/her own thinking;
d. the obtainment by theft or any other means of the questions or answers of an examination or of any other related resource that one is not authorized to possess;
e. the use of another person’s examination during an examination;
f. communication with anyone other than an invigilator during an examination or the use of any non-authorized assistance during an examination.

2.3. For any instance of having committed an offence, the participant will not be reimbursed, in whole or in part. In the case of expulsion, the participant will not be allowed to reapply to re-enter the Programme and will not be reimbursed, in whole or in part.

2.4. Without limiting the generality of the paragraphs above, for committing an offence(s) a participant will be subject to a penalty, as deemed fit by the course director. The participant will not receive a refund, in whole or in part. A participant may appeal the penalty he/she received with the Registrar in collaboration with an AMPAP Review Committee.

2.5. The maximum penalty for an offence is expulsion from AMPAP. For any participant who is expelled from AMPAP, the participant will not receive a refund, in whole or in part, nor be allowed to reapply and rejoin into the Programme.
