The APM Registered Project Professional (RPP) is a pan-sector standard for those able to demonstrate the competence in responsible leadership, who have the ability to manage a complex project and use appropriate tools, processes and techniques.
20|20 was pleased to work recently with the ECITB and APM to deliver the highly regarded RPP standard to the offshore sector. Following a six-month programme launched last year by the ECITB and Offshore Project Management Steering Group (OPMSG), 16 successful candidates from companies including Subsea7, Wood Group, Petrofac, Aker Solutions, Apache and Maersk have been awarded the APM Registered project Professional (RPP) designation.
Tony Marks, CEO of 20/20 Business Insight stated “The recognition this brings to the professionalism of the sector is vital as the need for effective project management in the sector has never been so critical.”
