The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) is the very first qualification you should consider in project management. As the name suggests, it covers the fundamentals of project management which means it focused on the different processes, tools and techniques of the trade.
If you’ve never worked in project management before – or had a formal role in a project and would like to – your training should start with this qualification.
You can also consider this qualification for new team members into the PMO for a comprehensive overview of the foundations of project management.
Why should I take the course?
The Association for Project Management (APM) is well-recognised within the UK and as the Chartered Institute for Project Management, they have several qualifications available for project professionals at all levels.
The APM Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) is the first rung on the ladder and is aimed at those starting out in project management – either from higher education or through a career change.
It is advised that this course is taken before others such as PRINCE2.
For those looking for formal and recognised accreditation, the fundamentals course is now available to take online.
