Course outcomes

APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) - formerly known as APMP,  is a comprehensive five-day course is based on the Association for Project Management’s Body of Knowledge 6th edition and covers the syllabus for the PMQ examination.

GEL recommends pre-course study using Povek’s APM pre-study workbook and the Provek PMQ Book. The pre-study workbook provides the delegate with a structured plan for course preparation. Due to the intense nature of this course it is essential that the pre course is completed prior to attending the course.

GEL also recommends that delegates undertake their free online Project Management Assessment (PMA6) in order to assess their readiness and suitability for the PMQ course and exam. This assessment identifies the delegate’s existing knowledge and experience and recommends the appropriate level of training required.
