What is APM? The Association for Project Management (APM) is the largest professional body of its kind in Europe with over 19,500 individual and 500 corporate members worldwide.
The APM Body of Knowledge 5th edition develops and promotes project management with a strategy comprising seven sections covering 52 knowledge areas. It defines the areas required to manage any successful project and forms the basis of APM's qualifications.
APM qualifications are aimed at professionals of all skill levels beginning with the Introductory Certificate - ideal for anybody looking to understand the principles of project management. Further APM qualifications require experience commensurate with the delegate's career progression, with APMP (IPMA Level D) and Practitioner Qualification (IPMA Level C). Those candidates who are looking to take their project management career beyond Practitioner Qualification should consider APM Registered Project Professional (RPP), the professional, pan sector standard from APM. RPP requires you to demonstrate the capabilities of a responsible leader, who has the ability to manage a complex project and use appropriate tools, processes and techniques.
The APM Project Risk Management Certificates - levels one and two: are for project and programme managers involved in project risk assessment.
