APM Project Management Qualification for PRINCE2 Practitioners 7th Edition 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.

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. It recognises the prior attainment of the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification. There are 73 assessment criteria from the APM Body of Knowledge examined in the full PMQ syllabus. As 26 of these are covered by PRINCE2 Practitioner, you will only be examined on the remaining 47 assessment criteria. 

This learning is aligned to the APM Body of Knowledge 7th Edition. 

Important Information

By the time you attend the workshop element of the course you must have completed the e-learning in full. If you have not completed all of the sessions in the digital learning then the exam will be much more difficult as there will not be time to review these subjects during the course. The APM recommend between 70-80 hours preparation for the exam, the e-learning module is designed to take approx 32 hours to complete. The workshop will account some of the balance, but you will still be required to commit time to prepare for the exam. In order to prepare sufficiently for the course you will need to spend between one and two hours per day working on the digital learning and sample questions in the weeks/ months prior to the course.
