What does the APM Project Management Qualification (APM PMQ) 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 Project Management Qualification (APM PMQ) is aimed at those wishing to achieve a broad level of project management knowledge sufficient to participate in projects from individual assignments through to large capital projects.

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.

Is the APM PMQ course right for me?

APM PMQ is aimed at those wishing to achieve a broad level of project management knowledge sufficient to participate in projects from individual assignments through to large capital projects. Applicants typically have some pre-existing project management knowledge, although this is not essential.

APM PMQ exam format

  • 3 hours duration, including reading time. Candidates will be given up to an additional 5 minutes at the end of the exam to collate their papers
  • Contains 16 questions – candidates are required to answer 10 questions
  • Each complete question carries equal marks (50 marks per question) and it is assumed equal time will be spent on each question
  • If you are attending a class, then the APM PMQ exam will usually run as part of the course
  • If you decide to study using the online option, we can set someone up as an invigilator and they can invigilate the exam for you on-site wherever in the world you are based
  • An online PMQ exam may be an option in the near future.

Traditionally the APMP course is run over 5 days including the exam. We appreciate that to have up to 12 personnel out of the office for 5 days can have a massive impact on your general day to day business. Sometimes 5 days out of the office just doesn’t work, so we’ve come up with a tried and tested solution which combines the very best distance learning with a 2 day virtual classroom course. Additionally the bespoke blended option offers you a more cost effective way to train you team, so it’s a win-win.

Next blended virtual classroom training date, 8-9 June

The Knowledge part of the training will be delivered to you through e-learning, videos, exercises, downloads and virtual sessions. The mix of different media keeps learning interesting and engaging.

A large focus of the distance learning is ‘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. Without that part, what’s the point?

You can purchase this training option here and select one of our existing workshop dates. If you would like to find out more about this option before you buy, please call our team on 01270 626330.

Part 1 – Distance learning

The effort required with the distance learning is approximately 30 hours of self study time. This will include a mix of video, e-learning, downloads, mock exams and virtual sessions. This will all be hosted on our Learning Management System and each individual will get their own login details. Full admin management is available so you can track and monitor peoples progress to ensure they are fully prepared for the 2 day virtual classroom course.

Part 2 – 1.5 day workshop

Delegates will have learnt the ‘knowledge’ part of the course before attending the workshop and this knowledge will be tested before they attend the face to face course through mock exam questions reviewed by a trainer. The first day of the virtual classroom course is incredibly intensive and will concentrate on clarification of the knowledge and validate peoples thought processes. The morning of the second day will focus on exam preparation to get delegates ready for the APM PMQ exam, if they wish they can take your APM PMQ examination that afternoon or another time convenient to their schedule.
