APM Project Management Qualification training courses- self-paced


Learning technology

The self-study course has been designed with the latest web technologies, so it works on Windows, MacOS, iOS and Android. It is fully responsive, so it fits any device and screen size – desktop, tablet and mobile. No browser plugins or installation files are required.

Best practice design

Like all our online courses, this APM PMQ course has been designed using the latest best practices in elearning.

Some competitors develop elearning cheaply by simply filming a trainer in a classroom. We don’t think that’s a good way to help students learn, nor does it engage learners.

Our course is highly interactive, and exercises have been designed to aid a deeper level of understanding, leading to longer-lasting learning.

We are confident that our interactive elearning will help you gain an understanding of project management so that you can sit your APM PMQ exam with confidence.

Benefits of elearning

Online self-study is ideal for busy people. By self-studying online rather than in a classroom there are some key benefits:

  • Saves you time – you don’t need to travel to a course venue. You don’t even need to go to an exam centre because you can take your APM PMQ exam online too.
  • Saves you money – the price of our APM PMQ course is very competitive. It comes with an exam too, so there are no extra costs to you.
  • Flexible schedule – you can study where and when you want – you only require internet access.
  • Flexible delivery – you can study on any device. You can even study on your mobile whilst on the move, or in the coffee shop!
