Key facts

The APM Project Management Qualification is online learning. You will not need to attend a classroom based event or exam, and all material will be provided online.

A payment of £363 + VAT if you wish to complete the examination is payable at a later date, when you are satisfied with your knowledge - online payment accepted below.

What are the course objectives?

The primary purpose of the learning is to ensure that delegates have sufficient knowledge and understanding to successfully complete the APM Project Management Qualification three-hour, closed book, examination. The course covers the 12 learning outcomes (APM BoK 6th edition) included in the APM Project Management Qualification syllabus.

What content is covered?

The learning focuses on providing knowledge, principles and best practices in project management and includes exam preparation. The APM Project Management Qualification assesses the candidate's breadth of knowledge in all areas of project management, from strategic and commercial implications, to the technical, organisational, and people management skills required to participate effectively within a project team.

The on-line learning is made up of a combination of learning bytes which are narrated by experts, practice questions, flash cards and other learning games, including case studies together with access to CITI's on-line study guide.

What will participants gain?

Each individual is provided with a link to the on-line learning which is available 24/7 and therefore designed to fit in with busy life styles. It is recommended that a minimum of 30 hours of learning is undertaken over a period of 2-3 months ahead of sitting the exam. The examination is quite demanding and lack of effort and commitment on the part of the learner results in failure to gain the accreditation. We strongly recommend that each individual carefully plans their learning and sets themselves achievable milestones to ensure that they keep on track. Wherever possible, having a work colleague or mentor (preferably the individual's line manager) to discuss progress at regular interval is beneficial.

The three hour examination can be taken when you feel you are ready - either by attending a CITI Open Course exam, or via the APM open exams. Further information is available here:
