What is the APM Project Management Qualification?
The Project Management Qualification (PMQ) (SCQF Level 7), is a knowledge-based qualification developed by APM, the chartered body for the project profession. Candidates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of how these elements interact and how their project fits into their strategic and commercial environment. PMQ is an internationally recognised qualification.
What is APM?
Association for Project Management (APM) was formed in 1972 in the UK to support project professionals through its qualification and membership scheme. APM has over 30,000 individual members and more than 500 organisations participating in their Corporate Partnership Programme, making APM the largest professional body for project management in Europe.
The APM Body of Knowledge forms the basis of the APM Qualifications. It defines the boundaries of project, programme and portfolio management and the functions undertaken as part of these endeavours. Incorporating a mix of tools, techniques, processes and skills, APM qualifications offer a progressive structure which demonstrates a delegate’s project management achievements.
The aim of the APM PMQ syllabus is to educate and assess the candidate’s breadth of knowledge in all areas of project management covered within the APM Body of Knowledge including budgeting and cost management, conflict management, communication, earned value management, leadership, negotiation, procurement, sponsorship and teamwork.
