Revised chartered standard 2023

We’re aligning our Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) standard to the APM Competence Framework 3rd edition.

The name, status, and rigour of achieving chartered will remain the same. We’ve ensured that the standard continues to support the profession and meets the principles of validity, flexibility, reliability, and fairness.

We want those who meet the chartered standard to feel able to apply with an application process that is intuitive and focused on drawing out relevant skills and celebrating successes in a manner that is robust with guidance aligned to the needs of our profession. 

We’ve ensured the standard remains accessible and to promote inclusivity we have revised the core and elective competencies at its heart.

All applications for the revised chartered standard will open from September 2023.
