On the 5th April, RPP rolled into the UK's capital cities: London and Edinburgh to present to an audience of over 100 APM members and non members who had turned up to learn about APM Registered Project Professional from Liz Wilson, APM's Head of Professional Standards and Knowledge and Julie Legge, APM's Head of Membership. As with all roadshows, RPP Champions were on hand to give their experience of going through the pilot and offer up any advice.

David Coombes, Senior Business Change Consultant at Bupa, found the opportunity to take part in the pilot and gain RPP status a very rewarding experience. David said: "Obtaining RPP status was challenging and rewarding, and provided the driving force to document my project management career over the last 8 years. The journey to RPP status also allowed me the opportunity to reflect upon my project management career and considernext steps. "

David offers advice by 'recommending candidates - give themselves plenty of time. Hard copies of the APM Competency Framework and APM Body of Knowledge are well worth purchasing before you start to complete the application process, as these 2 books will really help when it comes to writing your competency statements. '
