Requirements for achieving ChPP published
Full details of how to meet the Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) standard have been published and it has been announced that the register will open for applications on 16 May.
The published application guidance notes, which include details of the required competences as well as the process have been designed to help people prepare for an application either now or in the future.
Chief Executive, Sara Drake said: “This is a very significant milestone in our chartered journey, which has been informed by a valuable consultation exercise completed last year. I believe that the requirements for achieving ChPP are rigorous, yet accessible, offering different routes according to qualifications held, previous assessments and experience.”
At the same time, details of the recognised assessment scheme whereby awarding bodies or other organisations may apply to APM to have their assessment recognised as a relevant contribution for two of the routes, has also been published.
ChPP is for anyone that is meets the following criteria:
- having a proven track record delivering projects, programmes, portfolios or a key control or enabling function and;
- having up-to-date knowledge of current practices and methods and;
- being actively involved in the project management profession.
Applications are open to members and non-members.
A range of support services will be provided in order to support those that want to achieve ChPP. These support services are currently being developed and more information will follow with the opening of the register in May.
