Route 2

Routes to chartered

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

In order to become a Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) you will need to meet the following criteria:

  1. having a proven track record delivering projects, programmes, portfolios or a key control or enabling function and;
  2. having up-to-date knowledge of current practices and methods and;
  3. being actively involved in the project profession

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
