Project Management courses cover 3 main qualifications

This is the ideal course if you are new to project management. It will introduce you to and teach you the language and principles of this rewarding career and no prior knowledge or experience is required. In order to gain your qualification you will need to sit a 60 question, one hour exam paper. This course offers flexibility regarding your learning experience – you can choose from public courses, distance learning on demand which includes the final exam or onsite, in-house courses can also be available for larger groups.

APM Project Management Qualification (APM PMQ)

This course was formerly known as the APMP and is designed for those who see project management as the key part of their role in any industry and already have a few years of experience under their belt. The PMQ offers a solid foundation in the behaviours of project management for those who wish to consolidate that experience in a more constructive way in line with current best practices.

Flexible learning solutions offer face to face learning, online, virtual and in-house training including the exam and exam preparation. 

APM Project Professional Qualification (APM PPQ)

Moving higher up the career ladder brings bigger salaries and increased responsibility and many major organisations now demand additional qualification from their project managers to ensure they are truly capable of delivering top- quality projects, programmes and portfolios.

This course is ideal for those who have at least 3 years of project management experience and the qualification comes as a result of completing and passing 3 core and 1 elective modular exams that show you have learned the importance of professionalism and managing others including governance and project planning and control.

Project management courses offer the opportunity to receive a range of APM qualifications to begin or advance on your chosen career path including the opportunity to achieve the ChPP – the most advanced project management qualification aimed at those who are dedicated to committing to CPD (continuing professional development).
