APM PMQ (Blended)

APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) - formerly known as APMP, blended learning is based on the Association for Project Management’s (APM) Body of Knowledge 6th edition and industry best-practice, and covers the syllabus for the PMQ examination. It is designed to improve the skills of project management staff to enable them, through good project management practice, to make sound business decisions and thereby manage their projects to a successful conclusion.

The PMQ examination will provide the delegate with an internationally recognised qualification. This course format requires 25 to 35 hours of directed self-study prior to attending the 3-day classroom element of the course, with Provek remote expert support on hand for any queries.

The PMQ covers a unique blend of both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ project management skills. The 3-day classroom element comprises expert tutor-led presentation and discussion, with participative exercises, knowledge testing on self-study topics, mock-exam questions review and feedback, and tips and techniques for maximising the likelihood of achieving the learning outcomes and passing the APMP examination. Provek’s unique PMQ mock exam marking service is available as an additional optional.
