APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) 7th Edition blended learning

This fully-accredited blended learning solution has been created to help you attain this qualification awarded by the Association for Project Management. It combines highly interactive multimedia e-learning with an intensive three day workshop, that includes practical exercises and exam techniques in preparation for the formal examination.


About the course

The e-learning combines multiple voices, animation and interactive exercises, providing training at a time, pace and location to suit your individual requirements. 

The workshop builds upon the e-learning element. You will have access to an expert who will help prepare you for the examination. Ample time is allowed within the workshop for attempting sample questions and feedback.

This product 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.
