In May 2020 the APM launched their revised Project Management Qualification (APM PMQ) aligned to APM BoK 7 – the APM Body of Knowledge 7th edition. From 31st December 2020, all PMQ exams will be aligned to APM BoK7. This means that if you are currently studying for the APM PMQ you will need to book and complete your BoK6 exam before 31st December.
The 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.
The PMQ is the flagship qualification of the Association for Project Management. It is proven that organisations can achieve competitive advantage and improved project delivery through a highly skilled and qualified project management community.
Project Managers who have gained the PMQ have an increased confidence in their project management ability. Being more sure of best-practice processes and protocols means much more efficient running of your projects. Increased confidence and progression can often bring greater pride and clarity in the running of projects. It is often identified that the key part of a Project Manager’s role is communication. Being more confident in ability directly leads to better and more effective communication.
This includes the online APM PMQ course only.
