If you already work in the project management field then you will have heard of the suite of professionally recognised qualifications from the UK-based Association for Project Management (APM). These professional project management qualifications cover a range of different experience levels from the novice project manager up to those with many years’ experience managing complex projects who can achieve Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) status.
Build on your existing knowledge
The APM Project Professional Qualification (PPQ), from the Association for Project Management (APM), builds on the knowledge gained in the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ). It leads to direct entry as a full member of the Association for Project Management (MAPM). It is also a recognised assessment route for Chartered Project Professional (ChPP). This means that you demonstrate your up-to-date knowledge of current practices and methods of project management. As such, you can follow route 1 (professional practice, CPD and ethics) to Chartered Status.
Demonstrate your project management capabilities
The APM Project Professional Qualification (APM PPQ) version 2 (updated August 2020) incorporates a mix of tools, techniques, processes and skills that demonstrate candidates project management achievements, and this qualification specifically assesses capability in delivering projects, programmes and portfolios.
It is an assessment that covers both general and specific skills that professionals require across all areas of project management. It sits as a new qualification at a higher level than the APM Project Management Qualification (APM PMQ) (formerly the APMP) and below the gold standard Chartered Project Professional status.
The course is divided into three modules. Each module includes:
