Training for the Project Professional Qualification (PPQ), is delivered through a series of blended self-study modules, with an examination-based qualification that assesses your capability in delivering projects, programmes and portfolios.
Covering the core and specific competences project professionals require across all areas of the profession, PPQ is the most comprehensive assessment of professional project management.
To achieve the APM Project Professional Qualification, candidates are required to pass 4 modules in total. Each module concludes with a three-hour, written examination where the candidate must apply their knowledge to a simulation project embedded within the exam paper.
Each module takes approximately 30 hours to complete. Although mostly self-paced learning, the 20/20 package includes access to support from a tutor when required, as well as access to the APM sample paper for each exam.
The 20/20 package includes the following modules:
