This APM Practitioner Assessment assesses whether a delegate can apply appropriately those knowledge areas defined in the APM BoK

Delegates are assessed against 30 criteria, which require them to demonstrate that they can analyse, identify and understand both issues and information, and manage a non-complex project


The APM Practitioner Qualification is for project managers, project coordinators and team leaders who have three to five years experience in managing non-complex projects. This is an intermediate qualification for project management practitioners who can demonstrate an ability to manage non-complex projects or run a key control function of a large-scale project.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
