APM Registered Project Professional (RPP)

RPP logo"The standard for extraordinary project professionals"

APM Registered Project Professional (RPP) is a pan-sector standard for those able to demonstrate the competence in responsible leadership, who have the  ability to manage a complex project  and use appropriate tools, processes and techniques.

RPP is about recognising those who can achieve success in a complex project, programme and portfolio environment through the management of others. It will assess all elements of the APM FIVE Dimensions of Professionalism in a single standard, thereby enhancing professional status and recognition. It will raise the bar of project professionalism to a whole new level.

This is what APM chief executive Andrew Bragg said about RPP when it launched in 2011

Four project and programme management professionals give their perspective on RPP:

There are no membership or academic / qualification prerequisites. Anyone who can provide the appropriate evidence can apply. If you are not already a member of APM, successfully completing your portfolio assessment will earn you Full membership (MAPM). Full details can be found in the RPP Candidate’s Guidance.
