Project Management training course booking

RPP is about recognising those who can achieve success in a complex project, programme and portfolio environment through the management of others. It will robustly assess all the elements of the APM FIVE Dimensions of Professionalism in a single standard, thereby enhancing professional status and recognition. It will raise the bar of project professionalism to a whole new level. APM has launched the refreshed RPP standard so that it aligns to the APM Competence Framework 2nd edition and recognises the diverse paths individuals take into the profession, offering a new developmental route into RPP.

The APM Five Dimensions:

  • Breadth of understanding as defined by the APM Body of Knowledge.
  • Depth of ability in line with the APM Competence Framework.
  • Achievement through professional qualifications and a portfolio of evidence.
  • Commitment through Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
  • Accountability through APM membership and the APM Code of Professional Conduct.


What are the benefits?

The wider public can be confident that successful RPPs have been externally assessed as competent and dedicated to their own continuing development.

For employers, this visible investment in staff offers the benefit of raising the profile of project management as a driver for competitive advantage and improved project delivery.

For the individual they can be proud of satisfying one of the most stringent project management assessments in the world.

There is a growing recognition of the value that competent and capable project professionals can offer to society – both public and private sector. RPP sets project professionals apart through a robust assessment of the APM FIVE Dimensions of Professionalism. Successful candidates will be entered onto the APM Register of Project Professionals. The register demonstrates to users of project management services and the wider public those professionals who have met the standard for RPP.

Who is it for / who should apply?

RPP is for anyone who has either:

  • a minimum of 7 years’ experience of working in project, programme or portfolio management or in a key control function or;
  • achieved the APM Project Professional Qualification (PPQ) or APM Practitioner Qualification (PQ). Holders of these qualifications will undertake a reduced written submission.

This offers applicants the opportunity to achieve RPP based on prior experience or via a structured training and development route recognised through APM’s professional qualifications. RPP is available to anyone, from any professional background or industry sector, with experience of managing others in a project environment.

To be recognised on the APM Register of Project Professionals candidates will also be required to maintain their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) annually in accordance with the APM CPD scheme and adhere to the APM Code of Professional Conduct through maintaining APM membership.

Assessment Process

The assessment process by peer assessors comprises two stages:

  • Written submission – applicants are required to provide a written submission including:
    • a record of employment history;
    • an overview of at least two projects, programmes or portfolios to be used as evidence, likely to have been within the last seven years;
    • answers to five sets of questions relating to the projects, programmes or portfolios. These will cover both practical competence and breadth of knowledge. Holders of PPQ or PQ will answer the practical competence questions only;
    • a record of 35 hours continuing professional development (CPD) from the previous 12 months;
    • details of two referees.

Interview – an interview lasting up to one hour focusing on validating and exploring the evidence submitted in the written submission.
