What is a recognised assessment
An awarding body or other organisation may apply to APM to have its assessment recognised as either:
- meeting the technical knowledge requirements; or
- meeting the technical knowledge and professional practice requirements.
Should the application be successful, it will mean that those who have successfully passed the assessment will be eligible to apply for the Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) standard via Route 1 (for assessments meeting the requirements for technical knowledge) or Route 2 (for assessments meeting the requirements for technical knowledge and professional practice).
