Enquiries/Appeal can be heard relating to the grounds stated above in relation to APM Qualifications, APM Standards, Membership, Accreditation and Recognised Assessment.

By attending the assessment, candidates have confirmed that they are fit to do so; no appeals will be heard concerning a candidate’s wellbeing during the assessment as this should have been addressed at the time to either the accredited training provider used or APM directly.

When dealing with enquiries and appeals APM will always try to deal with these quickly. However, if it is clear that the matter will need a detailed investigation, APM will keep the appellant informed of the investigation process and progress at regular pre-agreed intervals.

How to make an enquiry regarding your assessment

You can make an enquiry/appeal regarding your assessment in writing by completing and submitting the below form. Once your request has been received APM will contact you to confirm receipt and take the relevant payment within 2 working days.

Personal details or details of any enquiry will not be divulged to third parties outside the scope of investigating your enquiry unless we have your written consent.
