What is APM?

Posted by: Jannike Post Date: 26th November 2014

The Association for Project Management (APM) is a leading professional body for project management in the UK. The APM introductory certificate (APMIC) is an excellent starting point for those who want to go into project management, giving you a grounding in the principal concepts and methodologies. The course will familiarise you with the processes, tools and techniques involved in the management of any project, preparing you to enter into a professional role in the field.

Who is APMIC for?

APMIC can act as a platform for further qualifications within project management, such as PRINCE2 or Agile, so it is ideal for those considering becoming qualified at an advanced level.

The course can act as an introduction for those who have not previously worked in a project management role. However, it is equally suitable for those with many years’ experience running projects, but in need of a professional qualification or a skills boost.

What will you learn?

APMIC uses the key elements of the project management lifecycle, which covers 27 knowledge areas from the APM Body of Knowledge 5th edition, including planning and scheduling, communication, teamwork, resource management, project risk management and project reviews.

Upon completion of the training, you can sit the APM Introductory Certificate exam, which leads to an internationally recognised qualification.

What is the Exam Format?

The exam lasts 60 minutes, and consists of 60 multiple choice questions. The pass mark is 36 out of 60.
