Fast-track route to RPP for CPM holders has been created
Posted by APM on 8th Apr 2011
APM have created a fast-track route to APM Registered Project Professional (RPP) for holders of the Certificated Project Manager (CPM) qualification. In recognition for the work and effort that goes into obtaining CPM, APM have specifically designed a way for holders of this IPMA Level B qualification to obtain the new pan-sector standard. For those who hold the CPM qualification, specific guidance notes and an application form have been created, which can be requested from APM.
In order to satisfy the future requirements of chartered status, holders of the APM CPM qualification will be able to access the RPP designation without further assessment against the RPP competences, and will only be required to submitthe RPP application form designed specifically for CPM holders which includes, as well as personal details, the following:
- Confirmation of date of issue of CPM (this will be verified against APMs records)
- Evidence of 35 hours of project-related CPD within the 12 months preceding the date of application for RPP (if the CPM has been achieved in the 12 months preceding the application, this meets the CPD requirement)
- Evidence that the applicant is professionally active in the discipline of project management in the form of either a statement of not more than 250 words OR a current CV explaining how the applicant is professionally active
- The fee (rate as at the date of the application currently 100 plus VAT)
- An application for full membership of APM and the appropriate fee, if the CPM certificate holder is not a current Full member or a Fellow of APM.
The applications will be evaluated through Ibis House in the usual manner. If you hold the CPM qualification and eligible to apply for RPP through this route, or if you would like further information, please register your interest by contacting APM.

Agile refuses to analyse requirements beforehand – and thus declines to provide an initial certainty. This will probably always scare any stakeholder trying to understand whether or not they can show results to the board with the budget that they are granted.
You have a choice. You can either muddle on, stand firm and fix it – or look elsewhere.
