"APMP is the qualification for anyone who has worked within project management for up to two years, such as project office personnel, team members, or recently appointed project officers, or for anyone who has recently taken on project management responsibilities as part of their job." (Association for Project Management)
Feedback from a January 2012 delegate: “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”
