Crossrail believes APM PMQ gives you the key ingredients

Danny Trup is client representative on the Crossrail project, the largest rail infrastructure project in Europe.  He believes that those with the APM PMQ qualification hold the key ingredients required to be a successful project manager.

“For me, the <a title="APM PMQ” href=”http://www.apm.org.uk/APM PMQ” target=”_self”>APM PMQ qualification demonstrates that you have the key ingredients of a project professional who is able to deliver the skills and knowledge at the right time. It is also a great step in your career development”, said Danny.

This endorsement follows similar statements from BAA Heathrow, who want ‘100%’ of their workforce to hold APM PMQ, and CH2MHILL, who feel the internationally recognised qualification is the ‘bedrock of the profession’. This advocacy is bolstering APM PMQ’s already sterling credibility across the profession.

Liz Wilson, Head of Professional Standards and Knowledge at APM said: “APM’s flagship qualification is a fantastic benchmark; both for employers looking for that breadth of knowledge from their project professionals and for individuals wishing to demonstrate their capabilities.”

The Crossrail project is bringing better transport to and across London, encouraging regeneration and creating thousands of job opportunities. Part of the project involves the construction of a new 21km tunnelled route across London. In delivering considerable benefits to London and the southeast, a project of this scale requires the right level of professional knowledge and experience to keep it on track and on schedule.

<a title="APM PMQ” href=”http://www.apm.org.uk/APM PMQ” target=”_self”>APM PMQ is recognised at IPMA Level D and SCQF Level 7 and is part of a suite of qualifications provided by APM in their commitment to supporting professionals throughout their career.  APM PMQ allows candidates to demonstrate an understanding of how all elements of project management interact and how their project fits into their strategic and commercial environment.

For current PRINCE2 Practitioners, there is a route which recognises your prior learning, with a shorter training course and exam. APM has <a title="APM PMQ for PRINCE2 Practitioners” href=”http://www.apm.org.uk/APM PMQ2″ target=”_self”>developed a route to APM PMQ which saves you time and money. You can enhance your professional status through a shorter training course and exam and independent research shows that those who hold APM PMQ can earn up to £10,000 more per year*.  Help develop your career as a project professional through this route to an internationally-recognised qualification.
