APM Project Management Qualification for PRINCE2® Practitioners

Fast track to the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ), previously known as APMP, exclusively for PRINCE2 Practitioners

APM Project Management Qualification or PRINCE2, what is the difference? Which is best? Are two things we often get asked. The truth is neither is better than the other and the best approach is a rounded skill set including both. But at 10 days training that is not always possible until now, as this is a cut down version of the APMP course leading to exactly the same qualification.
