NEW PPQ launched by APM

23 Sep 2020

The new APM Project Professional Qualification 2nd edition is now on offer.

NOTE that PPQ is a higher-level qualification than PMQ  and that all 3 PPQ oral or written assessments can be carried out online. It provides a simplified route 1 for those  looking to achieve the Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) standard.

The MSC has received PPQ accreditation and welcomes applications from delegates.

PPQ is aimed at any project professional either:

  • working in project management and looking to take their next career step;
  • holding the APM Project Management Qualification or equivalent;
  • looking to become a Full Member of APM (MAPM);
  • looking to achieve the Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) standard via route 1

The Qualification assesses capability in delivering projects and is APM’s most comprehensive assessment of professional project management capability, covering the core and specific competencies required across all areas of project management.

NOTE that PPQ is rated at  SCQF Level 9 - two steps up from PMQ, which is at SCQF Level 7. This is reflected in the three command verbs used in the assessment criteria - critically evaluate, critically analyse, demonstrate.

Training will be based on online tutorials for small groups (2 to 4).
