For candidates who have successfully completed the application process there will be a further workshop to prepare the candidate for the interview stage. This will include a checklist of preparation and candidates will be coached on how to develop their interviewing skills around the material they have presented.
The APM ChPP is available to anyone, from any professional background, with relevant experience of managing others in a complex project environment. Successful candidates will be awarded this coveted designation and also become full members of the Association for Project Management.
The ChPP application process is designed to build a comprehensive picture of the candidate as a competent project professional. Candidates require a sufficient breadth of technical knowledge, the practical competence to apply that knowledge, and a commitment to continuing professional development and ethical practice. This needs to be demonstrated in one of two ways:
- A candidate who is already in possession of the APM Practitioner Qualification or the APM Project Professional Qualification only needs to demonstrate the application of the relevant knowledge.
- A candidate who does not possess either the APM PQ or PPQ qualification will need to provide evidence of knowledge as well as demonstrate the application of that knowledge.
