Did you know?

The APM Project Professional Qualification 2nd edition is the newest qualification to be launched by APM.  It replaces the original PPQ and is an ideal stepping stone to full APM membership (MAPM) and an excellent start to achieving chartered professional status.  Once a candidate achieves the APM Project Professional Qualification 2nd edition through the Edison pathway, they can continue to work with our consultants who will then advise on the next steps to commence their application for Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) standard via route 1.

The Edison two day PPQ programme provides candidates with the depth necessary to achieve success in this type of assessment.  It is often the case that candidates may have a lot of practical experience, but this may be focussed on a particular area of expertise and may have overall knowledge but not to the depth required.

Our trainers have worked with APM to develop this qualification and so fully understand the assessment process and what is required from candidates for them to be successful.  That experienced is passed on to you in the PPQ learning programme.  

Your goals for 2021: Should include the APM Project Professional Qualification 2nd edition.

Develop your plan to become chartered.
