10 key features - Project Risk Management Single Subject Certificate
The APM Project Risk Management Single Subject Certificate is a qualification which has two levels: Level 1 and Level 2.
It is designed to build on the knowledge gained in APMP: The APM Project Management Qualification or similar project management qualifications.
Level 1 determines the candidate’s knowledge of the subject, sufficient to allow them to contribute to risk management within a project.
Level 2 determines the candidate’s knowledge, understanding and capability in the subject, sufficient to allow them to undertake formal project risk management.
It broadly covers an understanding of risk principles and processes, risk identification and response to risk.
It is possible to take Level 2 without taking Level 1; however, the Level 2 certificate assumes the knowledge of the Level 1 syllabus.
Level 1 is a 60 question multiple choice examination that lasts for one hour.
Level 2 is a three hour and 15 minute written examination, answering three questions, one compulsory and two from four optional questions.
Candidates can study through APM Accredited Providers or through self-study, using the reference texts detailed in the syllabus including the APM Body of Knowledge 5th edition and Project Risk Analysis and Management Guide 2nd edition.
Should candidates wish to undertake self-study they can enter one of four open exams run directly by APM.
