The APM Project Management Qualification is their flagship qualification for those with 2-5 years’ experience, or those undertaking a project management degree or apprenticeship.  It is a knowledge-based qualification that will enable you to demonstrate knowledge of all elements of project management.  You will be able to demonstrate an understanding of how these elements interact and how your project fits not your strategic and commercial environment.

Total qualification time is approximately 75 hours which includes approximately 32 hours of guided learning. 

10 x half-day live sessions delivered virtually or in-person
0930 – 1630 each day

The exam is 2.5 hours in length and is in two parts, with an optional break of up to 30 minutes in between.  Booking of the exam is flexible to allow the delegates to book when they are ready.
 

The APM Project Management Qualification is designed for people who already have some knowledge, understanding or experience of project management and are looking to move deeper into a project management career. If you’re a practising project professional, have taken some project management qualifications, or just want to refine your understanding of project management then this qualification is right for you. It’s also the ideal next step for anyone holding the APM Project Fundamentals Qualification. 

There are no specific requirements for experience or other qualifications that you must have before studying for the APM Project Management Qualification.

However, you will most likely:

  • Be working in a project environment.
  • Have two to three years of experience as a project professional or be actively undertaking a project management apprenticeship or degree. 
  • Be looking to progress your career and improve your employability. 
  • Be interested in learning about all areas of project management and not a particular methodology.

If you don’t already have any of the experiences referred to above, you might want to take our APM Project Fundamentals Qualification before studying for the APM Project Management Qualification
 

From September 2024, the qualification syllabus is based on the APM Competence Framework and the sessions will include discussions, exercises, case studies and example questions.  Content is grouped into four main areas within the APM Competence Framework, of which there are 24 learning objectives that reflect the competency criteria:
