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 former 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.
