APM open examinations

APM arranges open exams for candidates who wish to self-study. Open exams are available for the Introductory Certificate: The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification, APMP: The APM Project Management Qualification, APMP for PRINCE2* Practitioners and Risk Certificate qualifications.

For open examinations until 31st March 2015, candidates will be able to choose whether they are examined against the APM Body of Knowledge 5th edtion or 6th edition syllabuses, depending on the materials they have used to study and if the exam has already been attempted. Only re-sit candidates are able to choose APM Body of Knowledge 5th edition examinations. This only applies to the Introductory Certificate and APMP exams (Route 1 and 2).

Please be aware that the last open event for which you will be able to re-sit APM Body of Knowledge 5th edition based examination papers will be on 23rd February 2015. We had previously advised that November 2014 would be the last open exam date, but we are offering one more event for re-sit candidates only to allow candidates the opportunity to re-sit before the final deadline of 31st March 2015.
