This course is designed to give delegates a sound introduction to the key issues in project management and to prepare them for the one-hour multiple-choice examination held at the end of the course. The APM's excellent study guide for this certificate is provided to all delegates and is their personal copy to keep for future reference.

The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) is a basic or entry level qualification and is particularly suitable for:
Those who are new to project management who want to gain an understanding of the principles of project management as laid down in the Association for Project Management's Body of Knowledge.
Project team members with no project management training who would like to understand standard project management terminology and who wish to obtain the APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ).
A primary focus of this intensive course is to prepare you to successfully pass the examination. If you are looking for a more practical course enabling greater opportunities for project simulation and hands on exercises then you may wish to consider our course An Introduction to Effective Project Management.
By the end of this course you will be able to:
Identify the project management processes.
Understand project management terminology.
Correctly identify the roles involved in project management.
Describe project success criteria and benefits.
Support and contribute to a successful project outcome.
Prepare project documentation.
Have acquired the level of understanding needed to pass the APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) examination.
There is a significant amount of pre-course work for this course which includes reading the APM Study Guide (provided). Our advice is to do as much pre-work as possible (between 10 and 15 hours of study time), to give you the best chance of success. All of the information will be sent out prior to the course and it is essential that delegates complete this pre-course activity.
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.
