Updated APM qualifications launched

Save for later



Association for Project Management (APM) has updated two of its core qualifications by aligning them with the APM Body of Knowledge 7th edition, ensuring project professionals benefit from the latest information as they develop their careers.

This update brings both the APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) and APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) in line with the latest thinking and knowledge from across the profession.

The alignment welcomes new topics to the syllabus including hybrid and iterative lifecycles, while continuing to ensure candidates for both qualifications gain the core knowledge required at their respective levels which will fundamentally underpin their role as a project professional.  

Both qualifications maintain the same rigour, standard and assessment.  

In line with the launch of the revised qualifications, two new study guides have also been published to support candidates who undertake the updated versions.

Commenting on the launch, APM’s head of education and lifelong learning, Jackie Martin, said: “The APM Body of Knowledge seeks to reflect the developing profession, recognising project-based working at all levels, and across all sectors. It sits as a central point of knowledge for APM.

“Aligning our qualifications to each new edition ensures we are priming project professionals with the very latest knowledge and learning to support them through their career.”

Both the PFQ and PMQ are available through one of APM’s Accredited Training Providers; providers who have met the standard set by the chartered body for the project profession and reflect the highest quality in training.

APM will be dual running both qualifications from 4 May until 31 December, enabling candidates to sit courses aligned to either the APM Body of Knowledge 6th or 7th edition.
