Register of Chartered Project Professionals open

Save for later


Posted by James Driver on 16th May 2018

The Register of Chartered Project Professionals has opened for applications today (16 May 2018).

Guidance for applicants was published earlier this year and is available here on the APM website. It has been designed to help with an immediate application or to prepare for one at a future date.

To help applicants to plan and know when to expect results, APM has now announced application deadlines for the year ahead:

  • Friday 29 June
  • Friday 31 August
  • Friday 26 October

Results will be issued four months later. A full timetable is available online and if you are planning an application this year, please take a look to learn more about how it will work.

There are three routes for applicants: 

  1. For those who have an assessment that covers technical knowledge (the APM Project Professional Qualification (PPQ) has been assessed as meeting the requirements)
  2. For those who already have an assessment that covers technical knowledge and professional practice. This would be the route for APM Registered Project Professionals with up to date project delivery experience. 
  3. For those with experience but who do not hold an assessment.

Sara Drake, CEO of APM said:  “I would encourage everyone to check  the guidance and think about the right time to apply. Please also see how you help to spread the word and, if you have a team, consider how you make chartered part of their professional development.

“2018 is a big year for the project management profession. Not only does it see the opening of the chartered register, but we have launched our first advertising campaign promoting project management as a career choice. It is a great time to be a project professional.”
