APM Project Risk Management Certificate

The APM Project Risk Management Certificate - a two level qualification designed to ideally build on the knowledge gained in the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) or similar project management qualifications.  Candidates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of how risk management can be performed to support a project.

Project management involves the development and control of a number of activities that must be competently implemented for any project or programme to be effective and successful. Risk management is a distinct and specific area of the APM Body of Knowledge and a key control function within any project and programme.
