APM Practitioner Qualification (PQ)

Qualification overview

The Practitioner Qualification (PQ) is a 48-hour assessment centre at which capability is assessed through individual and group exercises. The PQ is recognised internationally by the International Project Management Authority (IPMA) as Level C.

Who is the APM Practitioner Qualification for?

APM, the chartered body for the project profession, has created the Practitioner Qualification for relatively experienced professionals (project management practitioners) who can demonstrate an ability to manage a non-complex project.

Candidates should typically have at least three years’ experience and hold either the PMQ qualification or demonstrate a good understanding of the APM Body of Knowledge with relevant Continuing Professional Development.

Our learning options

We offer a classroom preparation workshop in addition to support online through guidance materials on The PM Channel for candidates taking the PQ assessment centre.
