How does training for ChPP work?
Once you have the required knowledge and experience as a project manager to meet the eligibility criteria, you may wish to seek external support from a specialist training provider when applying for ChPP through the APM.
As a partner of APM, we work with organisations and individuals who require guidance and support to achieve the chartered standard accreditation. First thing is to assess your readiness for the assessment using a proprietary tool we have developed called Provek’s ChPP readiness checker.
The readiness checker is based on the ChPP application guidance and APM Competency Framework. We created this checker to assist project manager professionals in their efforts to progress their career. We’ve drawn upon our experience of deploying the framework in a number of other applications.
Once you have completed the ‘project sheet’ and at least 10 of the 11 ‘competence sheets’ you will then be provided with a summary report. Within this report, you will receive an assessment of whether you meet the ChPP standard. It assesses each competence based on your knowledge and experience while taking into account the complexity of your projects.
After the readiness checker assessment, Provek offers specialist support with one of our experienced consultants. They will coach and mentor you through your written submission and interview, including taking you through a mock interview and providing psychological preparation. Additional guidance is also provided through our online video training platform, PM Channel. Our Provek consultant for ChPP is a current ChPP APM assessor.

What is the next step after achieving ChPP?
Richard Money chose Provek to assist him through the ChPP process, providing invaluable coaching and mentoring through his Chartered assessment. You can read his story here. Essentially, Richard was ready for the next step. Having been in the project management profession for over 30 years the time had come for a new chapter.
Richard said that receiving ChPP accreditation is the pinnacle of his career. This opens many doors for a ChPP, from international recognition to job satisfaction. A ChPP is quickly becoming the gold standard for project management professionals across industries in the UK.
In addition, we have had the privilege to work with the BBC to provide specialist support in enabling their senior staff in gaining chartered accreditation. Over 30 staff expressed an interest in the scheme. We used our Readiness Assessment Checker to select candidates from the team. Nineteen candidates were accepted onto the scheme under the APM’s Route 3, applicable to those who did not have a professional qualification but met the experience eligibility criteria. You can read the BBC Case Study here.
The next step is up to you. Rise higher or revel in the height you have been able to achieve with a ChPP accreditation. From apprenticeship to ongoing career development, Provek is proud to be a part of your journey, wherever it may be at the moment.
