What is the APM PFQ?
The Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) is a short course created by the APM, the chartered body for the project profession. Using the APM Body of Knowledge 7 (BoK7), the PFQ gives learners an awareness of concepts, terms and activities that make up current best practice in the profession. The exam is a 60 minute multiple choice paper and no pre-reading is required.
Is this course for you?
The PFQ is an ideal way to start your project management learning journey as it gives learners a broad understanding of the principles of the profession. No prior knowledge or experience is required. So, if you have just taken on a role where you are supporting projects, or want to move into the profession in the future and want to find out more about it, then this course is for you.
If you have had some exposure to projects then this will be an advantage as you will probably be familiar with some, if not all, elements on the syllabus.
