APM Project Management Qualification for PRINCE2 Practitioners blended learning

The ever-changing and dynamic nature of today’s projects highlights the need for pro-active management of people, the project strategy and approach, along with the application of sound commercial and project management techniques.

Course overview

About the course

This qualification is a knowledge-based qualification that enables you to understand the breadth of skills required to successfully manage a project undertaking. This blended programme recognises the prior attainment of the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification and only tests those areas that have not previously been examined. It combines multiple voices, animation and interactive exercises, providing training at a time, pace and location to suit your individual requirements.

The APM has changed the name of the APMIC and APMP qualifications so they will be known as

  • APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) formerly known as APMIC
  • APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) formerly known as APMP
  • APM Project Management Qualification for PRINCE2 Practitioners formerly known as APMP for PRINCE2 Practitioners
