APM announce changes to the full member (MAPM) standard

APM announce changes to the full member (MAPM) standard, bringing greater focus to the recognition of experience of established project professionals who wish to join APM.

From Spring 2019, project management professionals can gain full member (MAPM) standard through the introduction of a new third route, and APM update the application process to reflect the varying skills and experience of project professionals.

APM has recently announced some changes that they are introducing to the Full member (MAPM) standard in spring 2019.

These changes are:

  • The introduction of a new third route – APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) holders with three years’ experience will be eligible to apply for Full membership (MAPM). The two existing routes will still remain.
  • APM is updating their application process with revised evidence requirements to reflect the varying skills and experience of project professionals.

APM advise that the revised MAPM standard will bring greater focus to the recognition of the experience of established project professionals who wish to join APM.

Over time the APM expects that other qualifications similar to PMQ will also be accepted, entitling people to successfully apply with three years’ experience providing they hold the agreed qualification.

The positioning of the standard and level remains the same and becoming a Full member (MAPM) of APM continues to be an achievement to take pride in; these changes will not affect membership to APM and future applications will go through the same robust processes before being awarded MAPM.

APM believe that recognising the value of qualifications in the MAPM process will encourage more project professionals to engage with APM to further their project career and gain professional recognition.

The new guidance document for the revised standard will be available prior to launch.
