Good project management basic skills and recommend attendance on the APM PFQ course, plus a minimum of 12 months actual experience across a range of project management areas and functions.

All potential delegates should undertake our free online project management assessment (PMA Lite) in order to assess readiness and suitability for the PMQ course and exam. Following the results of your PMAlite assessment, if you have any questions regarding your suitability for the PMQ please email enquiries@provek.co.uk for further assistance.

Pre-course study:

At least thirty five hours study using a pre-course study guide, The Provek APM PMQ Book and study videos from PM Channel.  The pre-study workbook provides the delegate with a structured plan for course preparation. Due to the intense nature of this course it is essential that the pre course is completed prior to attending the course.

Qualification details

APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) – formerly known as APMP,  is a comprehensive course based on the Association for Project Management’s Body of Knowledge 7th edition 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 three-hour written examination will provide the delegate with an internationally recognised qualification.

The course builds on existing knowledge and experience and attendees will learn how to better plan, control and monitor their projects including risk and financial analysis together with reporting on progress. Interpersonal skills such as negotiation techniques and managing stakeholders are also covered. The course uses exercises to reinforce the learning.

The course consists of four days training and half day exam preparation on the Friday morning.
