PPQ Re-Accreditation

Our PPQ online course is about giving applicants practice in developing the skills of demonstration, critical analysis and evaluation. Delegates need to have PMQ material at their finger-tips. We update them on the changes to the PMQ syllabus from BoK6 to 7 and talk about ethics and professionalism.

Then it is all about using the sample case study with the illustrative types of assessment - scenario role play, oral exam and written report - all carried out online in small discussion groups.

This approach has proved very successful with high pass rates and a top mark of 89%. APM have just reaccredited the MSC for the next four years to offer PPQ.

PMQ Exam preparation

The MSC hopes that its candidates will always try to work out answers to the exam questions rather than dredge their memories for the words in the Study Guide.   As we say, every project is different and presents new challenges; we as project managers have to work out the solutions using a logical approach. Our approach to PMQ is informed by this aim.  

'Understanding' is what the examiners seek in the exam answers and involves the links between the topics.  Therefore, the exam Workshop and exam can be taken any time after the course, giving time to absorb what has been learnt.

Note that APM have now added 15 minutes for reading to the PMQ exam duration making three hours fifteen minutes in total.
