What does the APM PMQ for PRINCE2 Practitioners course cover?

The APM Project Management Qualification (APM PMQ) is a knowledge-based qualification developed by APM, the chartered body for the project profession. Candidates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of how these elements interact and how their project fits into their strategic and commercial environment. APM PMQ is an internationally recognised qualification.

The APM PMQ for PRINCE2 Practitioners is specifically aimed at those who have already achieved their PRINCE2 Practitioner certification. It recognises your existing achievements and therefore only requires you to study for 47 assessment criteria, as the other 26 have already been covered through your PRINCE2 certification.

This course can be delivered on-site for a group of people, online or as a blended learning solution. If you would like to discuss the different options please get in touch we will be happy to help.

As we are facing an unknown situation as to when face to face classes will be back up and running again, we have a blended learning solution which combines exceptional e-learning course with a virtual 1.5 day workshop with an APM trainer. This solution is ideal if you are self-funding the course or you have a group within an organisation to train.

The e-learning will take around 30 – 35 hours to complete, and this can be done at your own pace in your own time.

Then when you have completed the e-learning, you book to virtually attend one of our trainer led virtual workshops which will run over 2 days. The timing of those days with virtual workshops will be 9am – 4pm on day 1, and day 2 will run from 9am – 1pm. Workshops in Nantwich and London will run for two full days and the exam will be taken the afternoon of the second day. These will be consecutive back to back days within the working week.

Upcoming blended workshops:

  • 19th-20th August 2021 – Nantwich or virtual classroom, 2 days
  • 11th-12th October 2021 – London, 2 days
  • 16th-17th December 2021 – Nantwich or virtual classroom, 2 days

APM PMQ Blended

Part 1 of APM PMQ Blended Course – e-learning

The effort required with the e-learning learning is approximately 30 hours of self-study time. This will include a mix of video, e-learning, downloads and mock exam questions and answers. A large focus is on ‘Project Management in Practice’. We know that you need knowledge in order to pass the final APM Project Management Qualification (APMP) but it’s also important that people can relate the information to their every day jobs in order to be a more effective team member.

Part 2 of APM PMQ Blended Course – 1.5 day virtual workshop

You will have learnt the ‘knowledge’ part of the course through the e-learning before dialing into the scheduled virtual workshop. The first day of the virtual classroom course is intensive and will concentrate on clarification of the knowledge and validate your thought processes. The morning of the second day will focus on exam preparation to get you ready for the APM PMQ exam. The APM PMQ exam can be taken online at a time to suit you.
