  1. having a proven track record delivering projects, programmes, portfolios or a key control or enabling function and;
  2. having up-to-date knowledge of current practices and methods and;
  3. being actively involved in the project profession.

You do not need to be an APM member to apply. Existing members of APM belong to a chartered body but in order to achieve chartered status on an individual basis, they will need to apply for the Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) standard.
