Established in 1994, Provek had by 1996 become an approved supplier to several major customers, including BT, Compaq and Ericsson. By 2000 the company was working with over 30 major organisations in resourcing and training.
In 2001 Provek’s training organisation secured APM and PRINCE2® accreditation as an ATO, with PRINCE2 registered training consultants supporting customers. In 2003, Provek was approved by the Association of Project Management to provide the APM Practitioner Qualification Assessment Centre, and in 2004 was accredited with ACO status, including the licence to administer the OGC’s PRINCE2 Maturity Model Assessment.
In 2003 Provek began to develop its bespoke online assessment capability by adding a competence framework to an existing online project management knowledge test. In 2006 a personality module was added to the assessment and the forerunner to PMA6 which has been undertaken by over 10,000 project staff went live.
The PM Channel was launched in 2012 and partnerships for video content were developed with APM, PMI UK Chapter, IPMA and later with AIPM.
In 2016 the APM commissioned Provek to create and run its APM Role Profiler online assessment. In 2017 Provek became the first accredited provider for the new APM Project Professional Qualification. In 2018 Provek launched their Associate Project Manager programme, supporting major organisations in utilising the Government levy to invest in their future talent and develop their project management capability.
