APM Project Fundamentals Qualification is the starting point for the APM’s qualification pathway. It is an excellent qualification to get for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, if you are new to projects, or are planning to work in project-based environments, studying for this qualification will give you a clear understanding of a project life-cycle. It will show you the key elements that the APM have identified as essential for effective project management. It will give you a great base from which to become a project management expert and a recognised one at that.
Secondly, if you want to achieve the APM Project Management Qualification (APM PMQ) level, we strongly advise you to complete the APM PFQ online course first. The APM PFQ is a terminology and definitions -based qualification. It teaches you the “language” of the APM. The terms and definitions that the APM use throughout their Body of Knowledge. This Body of Knowledge lays out how the APM have identified is the best way to manage projects, and as such it provides the knowledge that you will be tested on for the APM PMQ. The APM PMQ is a difficult qualification, with a three-hour written exam. Knowing the “language”, the terms, the definitions and the basic project life-cycle from the APM PFQ will put you in a much stronger position to pass the APM PMQ.
