Don’t miss this Opportunity

This is an opportunity for both ARes & Regular personnel to use their Standard Learning Credits (SLCs) on the above course and gain entry standard qualification into Project Management.

“This course is something that I have signed up to do…one because Project Management interest me. Secondly, probably like almost everyone – I have used SLCs once in the 10 years or so it been running for…with SNIY looking to drive CAPDEV (up skilling individuals forms part of that) then this qualification could provide opportunity for both civilian employment and being more effective within the military.” Ant Pennicott WO2, Scottish and North Irish Yeomanry.

This course would normally cost £930 (including exam costs). Engagement with IPSO FACTO (course provider) personnel could achieve this full qualification for £470.

You could complete this qualification by paying £470 (reclaim £175 max SLC per year) = £295.

  • APM PFQ training cost: £240/person
  • APM PFQ exam cost: £230/person. Recommend not sitting exam if going to complete the PMQ qualification.
