APM Project Fundamentals Qualification Certificate

Assuming you are successful in the APM examination, you will gain the APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (APM PFQ).

This qualification is also a great stepping stone in your career and is the next step to progress to APM Project Management Qualification.

We recommend that when you have completed at least 15 hours of distance learning you can consider booking your APM examination. However, different people have different learning styles and speeds, so we will not push you to take the APM examination on any given date – or impose cut-off dates on the distance learning. We have found this to increase delegate stress levels and negatively affect pass rates, which is why we have a 98% pass rate.
