Information about the APMP Exam

The world of project management can be a difficult one; pull of lots of long words and complicated methodologies and processes. However, the APMP training course is one which sets aside the others and is known for providing individuals with the information they need to create a successful project. However, in order to become APMP certified it is vital that you pass the exam.

To begin with there is the APMP syllabus which you will be tested on, these are the topics which the APM consider to be the most important in a modern project manager role. Individuals may already practise these on a daily basis but may not be familiar with their ‘technical’ name. In total there are 37 topics which are broke up into seven main subject areas.

  • Project management in context
  • Organisation and governance
  • Techniques
  • Business and commercial
  • Planning and strategy
  • Executing the strategy
  • People and profession

Each of these subject areas must be revised and understood in order for the exam to be a breeze.

The exam is three hours long, closed book and will be invigilated by an APM representative. APM do recognise that exams are not always perfect and therefore they only seek to test your knowledge of APMP and not your experience in it. They will test your knowledge by setting sixteen questions on a selection of various topics. You must answer ten of these questions and must score at least 55% to pass the examination across all ten questions (each question carries 50 marks).

Time management is crucial when you are taking the APMP exam as you have 3 hours and 10 questions therefore it is important that you divide your time well. We suggest you practise this during your APMP training course and test yourself…Your trainer can help you with this.

It is also important to read the question carefully, APM are not setting out to catch you out or make you fail, but in your haste you may reread something. So, take your time and try not to panic.

Remember, during your APMP training course to ask your trainer as many questions as possible to ensure that you are clear on each topic.

Good luck!
