The APM Project Management Qualification assesses 36 elements of the project management life-cycle, from the Body of Knowledge; across 10 syllabus areas and learning outcomes, with 65 assessment criteria. It is a knowledge-based qualification that is recognized both nationally and internationally, and successful candidates can carry the qualification from job to job or from one industry to another.
The qualification addresses identified knowledge areas from the APM Body of Knowledge - 6th Edition. Awareness and understanding of these areas is considered fundamental to the professional management of projects.
The APMP assesses the candidate’s breadth of knowledge in project management, from strategic and commercial implications, to the technical, organisational, and people management skills required to participate effectively within a project team.
The 3 day course covers the learning outcomes of the syllabus and allows for individual activities and group discussion to reinforce their understanding and knowledge, thus improving their ability to apply these skills in their own work environment. The APMP for PRINCE2 Practitioners Examination (2 hours) is part of the course.
