APM PMQ 6-Week Virtual

The APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) was formerly known as the APMP and is designed for those who see project management as a key part of their role. It establishes a solid foundation in project management behaviours, skills, processes and tools in any industry. It is ideal for those with a few years’ experience in project delivery, who are seeking to consolidate a structured method of project management in their company with a best-practice approach from the Association for Project Management.

The syllabus is based upon the APM Body of Knowledge 7th edition and provides an overview of the coverage of the qualification. The expanded syllabus content is provided in the form of learning outcomes and assessment criteria. These are structured to reflect teaching approaches in Project Management rather than the sequential chapters of the APM Body of Knowledge 7th edition.

Using an integrated approach, this APM-PMQ course gives you the ability to learn in your own way anytime anywhere. Delivered virtually, this programme has six virtual live sessions, exam preparation and a virtual exam. All with an experienced APM-PMQ trainer (using Adobe Connect for the online aspects). It includes our acclaimed distance learning package and a mock exam and takes approximately nine weeks to complete.

We have been offering this approach to corporate clients for a number of years and it has the following benefits over a traditional 5-day course:

  1. Less time out of the office.
  2. A weekly programme of learning with weekly homework and feedback.
  3. More time to study and absorb the course material.
  4. Very high pass rates in the APM-PMQ exam, with over 90% of candidates using this form of training passing.

Included in this course is:

1. Five weekly 2 hour webinars to cover the theory
2. Four sets of homework marked by the course tutor
3. A mock exam (5 from 8 questions) marked by the course tutor.
4. An online exam prep session after the mock exam
5. A face-to-face (where practical, virtual / online where not) exam prep and exam day with your tutor
6. The exam fees are included (*)
7. Our highly acclaimed printed study guide is published in partnership with The Association for Project Management. It is the definitive textbook for preparing for the APM Project Management Qualification (APM PMQ).
8. Eight online e-learning modules, closely integrated with the study guide.
9. A wide range of MP3 audio podcasts available direct on iTunes or our website.

Online exams are available.
