APM PROJECT FUNDAMENTALS QUALIFICATION (PFQ)
Fundamentally, project management terminology and concepts have been widely accepted into the way in which many modern enterprises are managed. In that sense, a qualification such as the Project Fundamentals Qualification (PFQ) can serve as a practical introduction into the subject as well as an internationally recognised qualification from the Association for Project Management (APM).
WHAT IS IT?
The PFQ course takes a practical look at some of the key theoretical ideas of project management and explores how these relate and are applied to the modern workplace. It is an excellent introduction to the core concepts of the profession, offering a fundamental awareness of project management processes, roles and terminology.
This full time, 2.5-day course is intended to prepare participants for the PFQ multi-choice examination on the final day.
