New Year's resolution: In 2019 I want to become... a Project Professional?
Is it your New Year’s resolution to develop your career? Whether you are a student, a recent graduate, undertaking a career change or seeking advancement, find out how to grow your career with APM.
The range of qualifications developed by APM, the chartered body for the project profession, offers a progressive structure for your career development. Starting from courses offering the ‘fundamentals’ of project management, through to ‘management’ and ‘professional’ levels of understanding requiring more advanced learning and assessment.
APM qualifications offer a clear route to achieving both the Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) and the APM Registered Project Professional (RPP) standards, recognising the competence and success of project professionals.
This event will provide information on ChPP, RPP and the current portfolio of APM qualifications. It will be led by two holders of the APM’s new Chartered Project Professional Standard, who will explain and guide you through the application process and provide insights based on their combined (50+) years of managing projects, programmes and portfolios of international repute/significance across various sectors.
Carol Bell (ChPP RPP HonFAPM) became a member of APM 20 years ago when she was appointed as Assistant Project Manager on the Eden Project. Carol has developed her career almost entirely via APM Qualifications and Standards, starting with the APMP - now the Project Management Qualification (PMQ) - in 1999, followed by the APM Practitioner Qualification (PQ) in 2003, PRINCE II in 2010, Registered Project Professional (RPP) in 2011 and, in 2018, she achieved MSP Foundation and became a Chartered Project Professional in the first cohort of 271 to be awarded the APM’s highest Professional Standard.
David Coombes (ChPP RPP MAPM) also became a Chartered Project Professional in the first cohort of 271 to be awarded the Standard in October 2018. He is an independent coach and trainer offering support to those undertaking RPP and ChPP, often working with training providers to help people develop their project management careers. David started his first formal project management role in 2001, gained APMP (now PMQ) in 2003 and RPP in 2011. David has experience of delivering projects in the healthcare and aviation/defence sectors, and of running project management communities of practice.
This event is suitable for professionals with any level of experience.
