Construction Project Management (APM PMQ)

The Construction Project Management course would be offered as an intensive five-day classroom training course, or as a blended learning programme with on-line learning followed by a two-day classroom session. This programme has been specifically developed to integrate NEC project management skills with the APM’s PMQ qualification. The course uniquely aligns the APM 5th edition of the ‘Body of Knowledge’ for Project Management for Construction and Development with NEC best practice project management and includes NEC case studies and NEC context. On the final afternoon in the classroom (full classroom or blended options) delegates will undertake the APM’s Project Management Qualification (PMQ) which is the internationally-recognised benchmark knowledge qualification for Project Managers.
Construction Project Management is a highly interactive course with classroom delegates working in teams to learn and apply best practice project management the following tools and techniques to a Construction simulation project:
  • Project context and environment

  • Project life cycles
  • How organisations and projects are structured
  • Planning for Success
  • Communication within project management
  • Project scope management
  • Schedule and resource management
  • Project Procurement
  • The principles of leadership and teamwork
  • Risk management and issue management
  • Project quality management
What qualification will I achieve?
Successful candidates will achieve the APM Project Management Qualification (PMQ) and be entitled to join the APM as a Full Member (MAPM). The PMQ and MAPM designations may be used on successful completion of the qualification and upon joining the APM (If you wish to do so).
Successful candidates with suitable experience can then progress to the APM’s Project Professional Qualification (PPQ) or the APM’s Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) standard (including being included in the Register of Chartered Project Professionals), depending on their level of experience.  ICE provides supported pathways to PPQ and ChPP for successful APM PMQ candidates and full details will be provided at the end of the programme.
Please note that this qualification does not replace the NEC Accredited Project Manager qualification and should not be considered a substitute for it.
Who should attend?
The course is suitable for all levels where the attendee wishes to gain a broad knowledge of Construction Project Management tools and techniques. The course is aimed at all those:
  • Working on a NEC project
  • Working in the field of Construction Project Management
  • Who are Accredited NEC Project Managers wishing to expand their knowledge
