The PMQ is the professional qualification awarded by the Association for Project Management. The focus of this intensive course is to provide you with a level of knowledge that will enhance your personal effectiveness in project management and give you a worldwide-recognised professional qualification.

The syllabus is based upon the 7th edition of the Body of Knowledge (BoK) and the sessions will include discussions, exercises, case studies and example questions.  Learners will receive the official APM PMQ study guide along with access to electronic resources to assist their learning journey.

Given the intensive nature of the syllabus, the course will involve around two hours of study each evening focussing primarily on sample exam questions and answers. This is designed to prepare learners for the three-hour essay-style examination paper that they will undertake at the end of the course.

The PMQ is a knowledge-based qualification. Successful candidates are able to participate in projects from individual assignments through to large capital projects. The PMQ is a qualification recognised both nationally and internationally that successful candidates can carry from one job to another or from one industry to another.

The PMQ covers 12 high-level learning outcomes from the APM Body of Knowledge. Awareness of these is considered fundamental to the professional management of projects. The course is fully accredited and approved by the APM  and Hemsley Fraser is an APM accredited training provider.

  • Achieve the PMQ, the UK‘s leading project management qualification.

    Learners will be given a copy of the APM PMQ official study guide approximately 4 weeks before the start of the course.  Along with this, they will also receive a pre-course guide and study plan.
