The APM (Association of Project Management) PFQ and PMQ courses offer delegates two highly regarded qualifications in Project Management. These courses take place at our Southampton-Solent venue which is located between Portsmouth and Southampton (M27, Junction 9).

About Bundle: APM PFQ & PMQ – ELCAS

Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ)

Project Management Qualification (PMQ)

This APM bundle is a suitable if you are starting with little to no project management experience and are wanting to pursue a career in project management. Both qualifications cover the same topics but the PFQ is a light touch over 2 days, resulting in a 1 hour exam. The PMQ however, covers the same topics over 5 days in much greater detail, resulting in a 3 hour written exam. This bundle is a useful stepping stone for further APM qualifications that ultimately end as a ChPP. (Chartered Project Professional).

Note: These courses are designed to teach you about project management and to prepare you for a new career in project management. The PMQ in particular will require you to carry out self study each evening to consolidate what you’ve learnt, and prepare you for the next day.
