Posted by APM on 15th Nov 2015

The new APM qualification is a clear and progressive “qualification route” to become an APM Registered Project Professional, providing organisations and individuals alike with a practical, meaningful, and relevant qualification that fills a gap in the market.  

The new qualification is based on APM’s Competence Framework 2nd edition. It has been designed to support project professionals development into future roles and give organisations external recognition of achievement and is underpinned by the role profiles that have been created alongside the Competence Framework.

It has been developed as a multi-paper qualification taken in stages covering 3 universal competences focusing on governance, leadership and project controls, alongside one elective paper. Each paper will last 3 hours and is made up of 4 questions.

The elective papers focus on specific project, programme or portfolio management competences, making it relevant to all project professionals, not just project managers.

The new APM qualification will focus on testing application of knowledge and understanding of competence. It therefore bridges the gap between knowledge and competence by developing capability.  i.e. it requires candidates to apply their knowledge to a given scenario in an exam situation. The qualification provides a progressive, clear and structured route to RPP, encouraging candidates into the profession earlier in their career.
