Course Outline

APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ)

This is a 2 day, instructor-led course.

The Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) developed by APM, the chartered body for the project profession, offers a fundamental awareness of project management terminology.
The APM PFQ syllabus assesses the key elements of the project management life cycle and covers knowledge areas from the APM Body of Knowledge, including planning and scheduling, communication, teamwork, resource management, project risk management and project reviews.
Delivered by fully accredited trainers and industry leading experts with extensive experience of applying the APM approach, the course ensures that delegates gain sufficient understanding to be confident in the practical application of project management as an informed team member.

The Introductory Certificate: The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification course follows the syllabus provided by APM, which is built around the APM Body of Knowledge 6th edition. The course provides delegates with a broad understanding of the underpinning tools, techniques and principles that are fundamental to successful project delivery.
The course is intensive and therefore delegates are also advised to undertake some revision work in the evening to prepare for the Introductory Certificate examination that will be taken at the end of the course. It may be beneficial if you bring along your own device for this additional work, which will be required during evenings will comprise consolidation reading and mock examination questions.

Upon successful completion of this course, delegates will have the skills necessary to:

•   Describe a project’s context and the relationship of this with project management
•   Describe ways in which projects can be monitored and controlled
•   Describe project success criteria and benefits
•   Carry out a work breakdown of a project as a first component of planning
•   Carry out a stakeholder analysis and describe ways in which they can be managed
•   Correctly identify the roles involved in project management
•   Support and contribute to a successful project outcome
•   Prepare for the APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) exam

This course is for students wishing to gain a broad understanding of the principles of the profession.

No prior knowledge or experience is required for this qualification.

Key exam information:
•   One hour
•   Closed book
•   60 multiple-choice questions
•   60% pass mark

Throughout the Introductory Certificate: The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification course, delegates will be provided with lots of examples of examination questions. There will be a number of exercises and question-and-answer sessions that will help to consolidate the learning, thereby ensuring that delegates are more than adequately prepared for the final examination which takes place immediately after the course has finished.

Please note: delegates must bring photographic identification with them on the exam day (e.g. passport, driving license, company secure access card, student card) as it is an examination requirement to present it to the invigilator prior to the exam. Failure to produce a valid form of photographic identification may result in a candidate not being able to sit the exams.
