Applying for chartered?
So you have decided to apply to become a Chartered Project Professional (ChPP)? One of the key things assessed when making your application is continuing professional development (CPD). Your development as a project professional will continue throughout your career and you must make a commitment to keeping up to date with the latest good practice within the profession.
You will need to have completed 35 hours of CPD in the 12 months up to your application and confirm that you will maintain this every year. All CPD must meet the requirements of APM’s CPD scheme.
You can use the APM CPD log, but this is not mandatory, provided you meet the necessary requirements. This includes a statement on the areas you would like to develop further over the next 12 months.
Things you might want to consider could include: work-based learning; distance learning; special work projects, writing technical papers; mentoring; voluntary work; association activities or committee work; promoting project management to young people; seminar/conference presentations; any relevant course or private study.
