APMP is an internationally recognised knowledge based qualification recognising both your technical project management and leadership skills. It allows you to participate in a project environment as a specialist or a team member. Successful candidates go on to use the knowledge gained to work more effectively on both large and small projects. APMP is recognised in many industry sectors as the basis for a complete understanding of project management.

APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ)
 
 
Duration
 
5 days
 
 
Course Overview
 
This highly interactive course covers the content of the APMP syllabus which is based on the APM Body of Knowledge, 6th Edition. The framework and tools that are covered provide a solid foundation for the successful delivery of a project, irrespective of industry sector.
Delegates will explore these tools through a number of facilitated individual and group-based exercises, providing ample opportunity for sharing experience and learning throughout the class.
In addition to the classroom sessions listed below, delegates will also be assigned evening work to help reinforce learning and prepare for the examination. The evening work is a key part of the course and may take approximately two hours to complete although some delegates may choose to extend this time.
 
 
Course Objectives
 
Upon completion of this course, delegates will have the skills necessary to:
•   Explain the internal and external contextual factors that influence the management and execution of projects
•   List and describe the key activities that are undertaken in each phase of a generic project life cycle:
   o   Concept
   o   Definition
   o   Development
   o   Handover and closure
•   Explain the interpersonal skills that are practiced by the effective project manager
 
 
Prerequisites
 
This course is intended for practising, or possibly aspiring, project managers with a minimum of two years' experience in a project environment. This grounding is essential in order that attendees have a basic understanding of project management in order that theory can be applied to the workplace. Delegates who do not have this experience are encouraged to attend the our APM Introductory Certificate course instead.
 
 
Course Contents

Context and Governance
The governance and setting of a project will heavily influence how it is managed. This section will cover topics such as:
•   The difference between project and operational work
•   Programme and portfolio management
•   Project team roles
•   The governance of a project across its life cycle

Concept Phase
It is essential that the need for a project is identified and understood before its viability can then be judged. This may involve:
•   Identifying and managing stakeholders
•   Creating a business case
•   Assessing project success and benefits
•   Procuring resources and contract management

Definition Phase
The definition phase is often where the project manager is most heavily involved and we look at a structured approach for planning the project - both in terms of what needs to be done and also how it will be done.
•   Requirements and scope management
•   Schedule and resource management
•   Budgeting and cost management

Development Phase
Putting the plan into action will require the project manager to undertake many of the following actions.
•   Project control, including cost control through earned value management
•   Manage information and reports
•   Risk and issue management
•   Health and safety
•   Quality management
•   Change control and configuration management

Managing the Team
No project is successful without an engaged and committed team. This requires the project manager to utilise a number of interpersonal skills.
•   Communication
•   Conflict management
•   Build and lead the team

Project Handover and Closure
Formal closure of a project will help ensure that the deliverables are handed over in a structured manner and that the team and the organisation has reviewed and learned from the performance on the project.
•   Project handover
•   Project reviews
