We have just launched the APM Fundamentals Qualification

Organization Chart 2We have just launched the APM PFQ. Everyone tells me that it’s a much more popular course than the APM PMQ. I expect two days out of the office and a simple multiple choice question paper is a good first move for many project managers. Anyway we have a couple of weeks to get a range of podcast programmes for the IC live. It would be interesting to get some input from people who are interested in doing the qualification on what they would find interesting. Or maybe even get a guest project manager to come along. Anyone interested please get in touch.
