Alan Macklin CBE highlights the flagship qualification from the Association for Project Management as being the ‘necessary first step’ for those who are serious about developing a career in the world of project management. Professionals who progress their career through APM’s suite of qualifications will be assigned to more complex, large scale projects, according to Alan.

“As you move further up to managing the big projects you need to hold APM PQ and RPP.”

Alan was interviewed at the Olympic Park and features in the APMP – The Professionals’ Perspective video alongside BAA Heathrow Airport programme director Julian Foster who wants ‘100%’ of his project management workforce to hold APMP.

APMP is part of the association’s suite of qualifications providing support for professionals throughout their career. Accredited at IPMA Level D and SCQF Level 7, APMP allows candidates to demonstrate knowledge of all elements of project management. Candidates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of how these elements interact and how their project fits into their strategic and commercial environment.

APM has developed a route to APMP which recognises prior learning from the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification. Through a shorter training course and exam this specifically designed route offers the most effective way of enhancing the professional status of PRINCE2 Practitioners. This route to achieving an internationally-recognised qualification could help develop a project professional’s career as independent research shows that those who hold APMP can earn up to £10,000 more per year*.
