The APMP (IPMA Level D) is an internationally recognised qualification awarded by the Association for Project Management, the UK's leading association for project management professionals. The focus of this intensive course is to provide you with a level of knowledge that will enhance your ability to manage projects and give you a professional qualification that is transferrable across any industry and sector.
No previous experience of working in projects is necessary; however, it would be ideal if delegates have had some experience of working in a project environment, preferably as a project manager.
Pre-read material is provided before attending the course. It is essential that you review all the information prior to attending the event – it will require approximately 25 hours study prior to the course. This programme also requires some structured self-study during the course to cover the material contained within the examination. Delegates are also advised to download support documentation from the APM website to assist with their study.
The documentation will be sent to you in advance and must be brought along to the course as it will be needed for reference during the training. The more you do before the course, the more time there will be during the course to ask questions, confirm your understanding and make sure you are adequately prepared. Please make a list of any questions so that these can be addressed during the course.
The APMP exam is a 3 hour written exam consisting of questions designed to test the delegate’s breadth of knowledge in all the aspects of project management as well as their understanding of project management techniques. Candidates are required to answer 10 essay style questions from a possible 16.
APM courses are delivered by Insights, an APM Accredited Training Provider.
Please note that you will need to have booked at least 10 working days before the course date, in order for you to be registered to take the examination.
All of our courses are worth 6 hours of CPD per day.
