Navigating APM qualifications, membership and routes to chartered

Royal Scots Club, 29-31 Abercromby Pl, Edinburgh EH3 6QE

What’s the difference between PQ, PPQ, RPP and ChPP? How does PRINCE2 relate to APM qualifications? What qualifications entitle me to full membership of APM? I’m already a full member of APM, how does that help me towards achieving the new Chartered Project Professional standard? 

This interactive session explores the relationship between APM’s current suite of qualifications, levels of membership and what routes are open to achieve the new APM ChPP chartered status. 

APM has a multi-level qualifications structure to develop knowledge and competency from fundamentals, through management to practitioner level. How do these relate to single subject certificates like risk, planning and earned value and APM’s new suite of IPMA qualifications which launch on 1st November.

Alongside this, these are the levels of Individual membership from Student, Associate, Full to Fellow.

Where do these fit with relation to the RPP and new Chartered standard of ChPP?

This session will offer plenty of opportunity for questions and answers along the way.
