Top ILX Certifications to Start Your Project Management Career

By ILX Team | 6 December 2016

  1. Projects in Controlled Environments (PRINCE2®)

The de facto standard project management methodology, a PRINCE2 qualification stands out to employers. It’s a common prerequisite for project manager vacancies. PRINCE2 teaches learners to envision how a business will achieve its objective. It’s then about breaking this process down into a structured series of organised stages.

We offer a PRINCE2 Foundation online course, which can be completed in 10-12 hours. You may prefer to take a 3-day classroom-based workshop, which includes the final exam. You can then continue with a Practitioner course or do Foundation and Practitioner in one go. See our range of PRINCE2 courses to find the right one for you.

  1. Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®)

The CAPM qualification delivers a working knowledge and understanding of project management. Its methodology is an end-to-end process in which projects are divided into manageable stages. It’s ideal for starting a career in project management. Existing project managers with less than 2 years’ experience can also use it to gain more responsibility and larger scale projects.

Pre-requisites are a secondary/high school diploma, and either 1,500 hours of professional experience or 23 contact hours of formal education, as well as an application to the Project Management Institute. Prepare for the 150 question multiple choice exam through our online self-study or classroom CAPM course.

  1. Association for Project Management (APM) Project Fundamentals Qualification

The APM Project Fundamentals qualification instils a globally-renowned project management body of knowledge, with 97% of qualification takers considering it “an excellent introduction to project management.” This professional qualification can also reap financial rewards, with APM qualifiers earning up to 10% more per annum.

The qualification reflects an end-to-end project management methodology, helping learners navigate a project from conception to completion whilst retaining a consistent quality of service. Participants will also be trained in “soft skills” such as confident decision-making and empathetic communication. The ILX Group offers a comprehensive e-learning course which takes between 10 to 12 hours to complete. A £395 purchase grants 12 months access to the online learning material and enters you into the final examination.
