How to gain corporate accreditation
Stage 1 – Contact APM and talk to one of our business development managers about our scheme. They will help you evaluate your readiness to apply.
Stage 2 – To apply, you will need to complete our application form, answering the questions as fully as possible. Here you will explain how your organisation meets the criteria for accreditation. In particular, our Assessors will look for evidence of your organisation’s commitment to the APM Five Dimensions of Professionalism. A full set of guidance notes is provided and you will also have the support of your APM business development manager throughout.
Stage 3 – Our assessors will conduct a desk assessment of your application and complete a report. We will inform you promptly of the outcome. You will receive a copy of the report and advice on areas that require development in order to meet the standards of accreditation, if necessary.
Fees and duration
Corporate accreditation lasts for three years with an annual payment for each of the three years.
