Our popular PMQ (APM Project Management Qualification) is an ideal course for those who have at least two years project management experience or have either the PFQ or are PRINCE2 Practitioner qualified. The PMQ is recognised both nationally and internationally, giving successful candidates a recognised qualification that can be carried from one job to another or from one industry to another. Courses at our Southampton-Solent venue (M27, Junction 9).
This is a knowledge based qualification covering the 12 core elements of project management. By the end of the course you will be able to demonstrate an understanding of how these elements interact and how your projects fit into your strategic and commercial environment. The nationally and internationally recognised PMQ gives you a qualification that can be carried from one job to another or from one industry to another.
The PMQ qualification is the perfect choice for those wishing to achieve a broad level of project management knowledge sufficient to participate in projects from individual assignments through to large capital projects. It would be beneficial to have been working in a project environment for 2 years or more.
This course is most suitable for the following roles:
If your role is not on the list above but you would like a career in project management, then please consider attending our PFQ course prior to the PMQ. It would also be of benefit to gain some work experience in project management before you undertake the PMQ. If you would like to discuss your circumstances then please don’t hesitate to contact us.
If you have significant experience working in a project environment then the PMQ option may be at the right level for you. With little or no experience, it will be of benefit to attend our PFQ first.

There will be homework each night with questions relating to the topics covered during the day. Please set aside enough time to answer the questions in the time you’ve been given.
