Who should become a Chartered Project Professional (ChPP)?
ChPP is for anyone that meets the following criteria:
- having a proven track record delivering projects, programmes, portfolios or a key control or enabling function and;
- having up-to-date knowledge of current practices and methods and;
- 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. A range of support services are now available to book to support those that want to achieve ChPP. These support services are open to all, however individual members of APM receive a discounted rate.
