APM Chartered Project Professional (ChPP)

AOM ChPP new

Designation overview

The APM Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) was revised in September 2023 and is APM, the chartered body for the project profession's, pan-sector standard.

The ChPP standard is a benchmark of professional project practice, providing independent recognition of your proven capabilities. It allows holders to demonstrate responsible leadership and the competencies necessary for effective project, programme or portfolio management – including the ability to manage a complex project and ability to use appropriate tools, processes and techniques.

There are three routes to gaining ChPP accreditation dependent on whether you hold recognised assessments for technical knowledge and professional practice or simply meeting the eligibility criteria without these formal assessments.

ChPP robustly assesses the following areas, requiring you to show:

  • Technical knowledge: advanced technical knowledge and understanding of how to deliver projects, programmes or portfolios.
  • Professional practice: successful application of technical knowledge that involved conflicting objectives; high levels of unpredictability or risk; multiple work packages, projects or programmes; multiple interdependent stakeholders.
  • Ethics and continuing CPD: you will need to commit to professional ethics and show continuing professional development.

You will also require two proposers.

Accreditation requires approximately 25-35 hours of effort, with driven candidates expected to achieve ChPP in 4-6 months.

About Provek’s proprietary readiness checker

The Provek ChPP readiness checker is based on the ChPP application guidance and APM Competence Framework. Created by Provek it draws upon our experience of deploying the framework in a number of other applications.

On completing the ‘project sheet’, and at least 7 of the 12 ‘competence sheets’, you will be provided with a summary report. This report provides an assessment of whether you meet the ChPP standard for each competence, based on the breadth and depth of your competence, taking into account the complexity of your projects.
