Start your career in project management with our highly regarded 2-day PFQ (APM Project Fundamentals Qualification) course. This course is suitable for those with little or no experience in project management and is delivered at our Southampton-Solent venue, between Portsmouth and Southampton.
This course can also be delivered on-site for a group of 4+ delegates. Contact us for more information.
The PFQ course offers a fundamental awareness of project management terminology and is for those wishing to gain a broad understanding of the principles of the profession. The course will provide you with the knowledge to make a positive contribution to any project and is particularly suitable if you work in a project team.
No prior knowledge or experience is required for this qualification.
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. 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 guide. Contact us to discuss your options.
Project Management can be a dry subject, however, our very experienced trainers will inspire you. You will be encouraged to ask questions and join in discussions. Dress code, smart casual.
To provide complete flexibility, and give you time to absorb what you’ve learnt we’re now providing APM PFQ online exams to be taken using the APM’s contracted 3rd party proctor, who will monitor your exam wherever and whenever you wish to take it. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 360 days of the year. The current climate has forced us to take this action with immediate effect, in order to provide you with a more flexible and sustainable solution.
The following list contains recommendations for scheduling your PFQ online exam:
To schedule your exam to start from the next day onwards, you’re able to choose any date/time in 15 minute slots. To schedule your exam for the same day, you’re only able to schedule within 90 minutes. Should you wish to sit the exam at 9pm then login at 7.30pm to schedule a time slot.
