Many new and experienced project professionals wonder what is the best training for them, and how they can develop themselves for their current and future roles. APM Chartership (ChPP) is the ultimate recognition of experience and achievements.

This interactive session, promoted by APM Scotland Branch, explained the different qualifications available from APM, gave some real life experiences from APM members, and covered the APM ChPP journey to help you determine your own training and development path.

Benefits of attending:

1. Looking at the best development path
2. Determining current capabilities and competencies
3. Assessing options available for development

Following the completion of the webinar each member should have the information to help them develop their own personal development plan.

There was also a Q&A session after the presentation.


  • Greg Philp – a recent ChPP – who will share his experience and what helped him on his road to Chartership
  • Neil Harkin, Respected Trainer with experience of those undertaking training and APM qualifications
  • James Ware, APM Standards and Qualifications

The speakers have very kindly allowed their presented material to be made available for viewing. The webinar recording on YouTube is now available in our APM resources area and also embedded below for reference.
