APM PMQ is the ‘bedrock of the project management profession’

The <a href="http://www.apm.org.uk/APM PMQ” target=”_self”>APM PMQ qualification is the ‘bedrock for the project management profession’ according to the business development director at CH2MHILL – one of the delivery partner organisations behind the programme management of the entire Olympic Park.

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 APM PMQ – The Professionals’ Perspective video alongside BAA Heathrow Airport programme director Julian Foster who wants ‘100%’ of his project management workforce to hold APM PMQ.

<a href="http://www.apm.org.uk/APM PMQ” target=”_self”>APM PMQ 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, APM PMQ 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 <a href="http://www.apm.org.uk/APM PMQ2″ target=”_self”>developed a route to APM PMQ 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 APM PMQ can earn up to £10,000 more per year*.
