Should you take the PFQ or PMQ
If you have little or no project management experience then the PFQ course is suitable for you. However, if you have experience working in a project team and understand some project management terminology, then you may consider the PMQ. Please don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss your options.
Still unsure if you should take the PFQ or PMQ
Download the PMQ self assessment spreadsheet. Attempt as many questions as possible, scoring your answer with either 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. If your overall average score is greater than or equal to 2.5 it would indicate you’re ready to undertake the PMQ. It’s only a simple guide, so if you have any questions once you’ve completed the assessment please don’t hesitate to contact us.
