APM Project Management Qualification

APM Project Management Qualification

APM Project Management Qualification2022-04-27T04:35:00+01:00

The APM Project Management Qualification (SCQF Level 7) is a knowledge-based qualification. It enables you to demonstrate knowledge of all elements of project management. You’ll be able to demonstrate an understanding of how these elements interact and how your project fits into your strategic and commercial environment.

Typically delivered over 5-days (either classroom or remote live) we recommend this comprehensive course is split over a 3 week period, 2 days training in week 1 & 2, with the final day on week 3 being exam preparation (am) followed by the 3-hour exam itself in the afternoon. All our delegates receive the complete APM PMQ Study Guide as well as our comprehensive Wellingtone Training Pack. We typically customise this course to align with your PPM Delivery Framework, governance and processes.  Those looking for a shorter course opt for the 2-day APM Project Fundamentals Qualification.

Assessment & Certification

The APM Project Management Qualification is the blue ribbon certification for professional Project Managers. We typically deliver this course over 4 days, with the 5th day being spent preparing for and sitting the 3-hour exam. All our delegates receive the comprehensive APM PMQ Study Guide and we recommend undertaking the course over a 2 or 3 week period to allow time for exam preparation outside of core course hours. We’ll hold your hand through the whole process and ensure you are in a great place to succeed! The APM exam fee is £425 per delegate.

This qualification is ideal for those looking to build on their practical project management experience or PFQ. We deliver this course with a keen eye for practical application of tools and techniques; from building a plan to assessing risks and engaging stakeholders.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do we get our results?2022-02-09T14:36:54+00:00

Each candidate receives their results directly via email from the APM. They also send the full results of each exam to us and we share this with the appropriate L&D / HR contact in your organisation. Results can take up to 6 weeks for the PMQ exam.

What happens if delegates don’t pass the exam?2022-02-09T14:35:35+00:00

APM exams are either simply “pass” or “fail” based on a clear pass mark requirement. Don’t worry if a delegate fails the exam, they can retake it at a reduced re-sit APM exam fee as many times as they like. If we are delivering a set of courses re-take delegates are welcome to join a future course or join a future exam sitting at no cost (excluding APM exam fee).

If we have completed all training for your organisation we are happy to invigilate an exam resit over ½ a day or provide a full day of revision and exam, both at a discounted cost.

How do candidates sit the exam?2022-02-09T14:36:05+00:00

All exams are undertaken online, whether the course is in person or remote-live. Wellingtone is authorised to invigilate PFQ. For online exams, this requires delegates to join a Teams or Zoom call on their mobile device so they can be monitored whilst undertaking the exam on their laptop. The process works well and we have completed hundreds of exams for many different organisations.

How are candidates registered for the exam?2022-02-09T14:36:15+00:00

We’ll do this for you. As an APM Accredited Training Provider, we will register your delegates for the exam a couple of weeks ahead of the exam date.  We’ll send each delegate login details and their candidate code on the day of the exam. Please note once a candidate is registered with the APM then the exam fee is payable, whether they sit the exam or not.
