Introduction

Developed by the Association for Project Management (APM), Project Management Qualification (PMQ) is a knowledge-based qualification that allows professionals to demonstrate a good understanding of project management in strategic and commercial environments.

This online training course provides comprehensive coverage of the tools, techniques and insights highlighted by the APM Body of Knowledge. Students can then apply their new knowledge to any project regardless of their organization’s background, industry or sector.

There is a constant demand for qualified project managers who have the ability to work within tight constraints in order to deliver successful projects. This requires the ability to effectively manage resources to achieve short-term goals and a clear understanding of the different elements that go into a successful project from start to finish. Many project management training courses reflect this, but in an impenetrable language that can be difficult for less experienced project managers to understand.

The syllabus for this course covers several key knowledge areas, providing professionals with comprehensive knowledge of the key concepts, tools and techniques of project management, without any unnecessary jargon. The course fully prepares professionals to sit and pass the PMQ examination.

Benefits for Individuals

Due to its comprehensive and complex coverage, the PMQ qualification holds a lot of value for many organizations seeking highly competent project managers.

The course is ideal for professions from the public and private sector including:

  • Project managers
  • Project office personnel
  • Project team members
  • Project officers

Benefits for Organizations
