Five Dimensions of Professionalism

Beyond our APM accredited training and development programmes, our services align to the APM’s 5 Dimensions of Professionalism. Those Dimensions are the attributes that any individual needs to demonstrate for society to acknowledge them as being a professional person, regardless of the discipline they practice.

  • Breadth 

The APM Body of Knowledge defines the knowledge needed to manage any kind of project. It underpins many project management standards and methods including the National Occupational Standards in Project Management.

  • Depth

The APM Competence Framework provides a guide to project management competences. It is part of your professional toolkit; mapping levels of knowledge and experience to help you progress your skills and abilities.

  • Achievement

APM qualifications take your career in new and exciting directions. They are recognised across the profession and aligned with IPMA’s 4 level Certification Program.


  • Commitment

Continuing Professional Development helps develop your project management practice. A targeted development plan will enhance your project management career.


  • Accountability 

The APM Code of Professional Conduct outlines the ethical practice expected of a                   professional.  Becoming an APM member shows your commitment to the Code and sets you apart from others.
