APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ)
The APM Project Management qualification (PMQ), is a knowledge-based qualification developed by APM, the chartered body for the project profession.

This course is aligned to the APM Body of Knowledge version 7.
This course includes the PMQ examination, and all course material to prepare you fully for your exam.
The PMQ is aimed at anyone with pre-existing project management knowledge, and it is the ideal next step for anyone holding the APM Project Fundamentals qualification (PFQ)
