Project Management Qualification (PMQ)
What is the PMQ?
The Project Management Qualification (PMQ) has been developed by the APM, the chartered body for the project profession.
Using the APM Body of Knowledge 6 (BoK6), which contains the concepts, terms and activities that make up current best practice in the profession, candidates will gain an in-depth understanding of how the many elements of project management interact. They will return to work with a better idea of how to improve the chances of their projects delivering valuable outputs, on time and on budget.
Is this course for you?
This is a challenging 5 day course. There is a lot of material covered in a short amount of time (4 days). The exam, taken on day 5, is a 3 hour written paper and we strongly recommend that learners complete some pre-reading before they arrive. The reward for all this hard work is an internationally recognised qualification that is very well respected by other project professionals. 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.
Successful candidates that have at least 3 years of project experience will be able to apply for full membership of the APM. This allows them to write 'MAPM' after their name. This is quite a compelling reason to go the for the PMQ, particularly if you are trying to decide between this course and others such as PRINCE2.

The APM Project Management Qualification is a challenging course aimed at those who already have some project management knowledge. If you are currently working in projects but want to have more confidence in what you are doing, or are an experienced project manager that wants to have an internationally recognised qualification to reflect your industry expertise, then consider this course.
There are no entry requirements for this course. However, the PMQ is the ideal next step for anyone holding the APM Project Fundamentals (PFQ) qualification. Anyone with another project management qualification such as PRINCE2, MSP or MoR will also find that they are familiar with some of the topics in this course.
By the end of the course, learners will be prepared for the exam and feel more confident managing and supporting projects back in their workplace.
If you want more qualifications then the next step would be to work towards the APM Project Professional Qualification.
