What is APMP?
APMP (IPMA Level D) is an internationally recognised, knowledge-based qualification, enabling participation in a wide range of projects from individual assignments through to large capital projects.
The course is based on the Association for Project Management’s Body of Knowledge (APM BoK) and offers an effective foundation in project management suitable for projects in any industry or the public sector.
APMP assesses your breadth of knowledge in all areas of project management, from strategic and commercial implications, to the technical, organisational, and people management skills required to participate effectively within a project team.
Our intensive APMP course is run over five days (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm), plus a three-hour examination taken ten days later.
The examination is preceded by an optional post-revision three-hour Examination Preparation Session. Complimentary prior learning is recognised for PRINCE2® Registered Practitioners through a reduced (two-hour) APMP exam.

What our clients say…
“I chose UCL because I felt they would offer world class tuition that would cover the APMP content and beyond; sharing also their own knowledge and experiences, which I found very valuable. This was demonstrated through their lecturing style but also the extensive invaluable notes and supporting literature provided with the course. The staff have been very supportive and I can unreservedly recommend APMP at UCL.”
