What is APMP?
APMP (IPMA Level D ) is a knowledge based qualification that allows candidates to demonstrate knowledge of all elements of project management. Candidates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of how these elements interact and how their project fits into their strategic and commercial environment. APMP is a qualification recognised both nationally and internationally giving candidates a qualification that can be carried from one job to another or from one industry to another.
Who is it for?
APMP 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.
What is assessed?
The APMP syllabus assesses breadth of knowledge in all areas of project management and covers 37 knowledge areas from the APM Body of Knowledge 5th edition including budgeting and cost management, conflict management, communication, earned value management, leadership, negotiation, procurement, sponsorship and teamwork.
How is it assessed?
A three hour paper where candidates must answer ten from sixteen questions derived from all 37 syllabus topics. An alternative route is available for those who have prior learning through PRINCE2
