APM launches online examinations for project management professionals
Association for Project Management (APM) is pleased to announce that it is has made examinations for its project management qualifications available online, in response to the current situation and growing demand within the project profession.
APM’s online examinations will be available for the following qualifications:
- APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ)
- APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ)
- APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) for Prince2
- IPMA Level D
- APM Risk 1 Qualification
This accelerated roll out of online exams due to the escalating situation with Covid-19 will ensure that all project professionals can continue to develop themselves through APM qualifications, while ensuring the health and safety of all those involved in the exam process.
APM is now working closely with its Accredited Training Providers to support them with the online examination process.
Jo Connolly, head of service innovation at APM said: “As the chartered body for the project profession, we want to ensure that all those wishing to continue with their career development during this difficult time are supported, and are able to do so without leaving their home. The introduction of our new online qualification platform will allow people to take their choice of exam, at whatever point they are in their career.”
Online versions of the further APM examinations will also be available later this month:
- APM Project Professional Qualification (PPQ)
- APM Risk 2 Qualification
The range of qualifications developed by APM offers a progressive structure for career development, 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 Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) status, recognising the competence and success of project professionals.
In adherence to Government advice, APM has currently stopped paper examinations across all qualifications.
