Our 5-day PMQ for PRINCE2® Practitioners course includes a 2 hour exam paper that recognises prior learning. The PMQ is a highly regarded qualification in project management that is recognised both nationally and internationally.
Our courses take place at our Southampton-Solent venue which is conveniently located between Southampton and Portsmouth.
If you’ve completed the full PRINCE2 ® course and passed both Foundation and Practitioner exams you are entitled to take the shorter 2 hour APM PMQ exam, instead of the standard 3 hour exam. Its because the APM recognises those who have taken and passed the PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification and recognises prior learning. In this paper you must answer six from ten questions that will not include subjects already covered in PRINCE2.
More about the APM PMQ from the APM website. If you’re not sure about which qualification to choose have a look at our list of project management qualifications.
You have a registered PRINCE2 Practitioner qualification, and an understanding of a project management method. You now want to expand your knowledge and include a wider range of highly relevant project management topics. See list of additional topics below.
You will be exempt from 12 topics in the PMQ syllabus already covered in your PRINCE2® Practitioner course. All PMQ topics will be covered in the course, so this maybe an opportunity for you to either reinforce your understanding of these topics, or take a break when those topics are being covered. You can discuss your options with the trainer at the start of the course.
