Route 2 to ChPP

Route 2 is for project professionals who have a recognised assessment for technical knowledge and professional practice.

Your assessment of technical knowledge and professional practice is via the recognised assessment that you hold, therefore you do not need to complete a written submission. You will be asked to upload your CPD (Continuing Professional Development) covering 35 hours and give your proposers’ details.

You will then be invited to an interview which will last up to 30 minutes and will cover:

  • CPD
  • Ethics
  • Currency of mandatory competences
