From the 1st July, all submissions for The APM's Registered Project Professional (RPP) standard will follow the new 2nd edition. The standard allows holders to demonstrate responsible leadership and the competencies necessary for effective project, programme or portfolio management including the ability to manage a complex project and ability to use appropriate tools, processes and techniques.

The APM is now the Chartered body for the project profession. While the qualification route is to be agreed, the APM has indicated that anyone holding RPP will have achieved the required competence level to become a Chartered Project Professional.

Why is there a new 2nd Edition?

The main reasons for the RPP 2nd Edition are:

  • Alignment with APM 2nd Edition Competence Framework
  • A refresh of the RPP assessment process after six years since its launch

How does the 2nd Edition RPP process differ to the original process?

  • It has an additional route recognising achievement of the APM Project Professional Qualification (PPQ) or APM Practitioner Qualification (PQ)
  • You need a majority of project evidence in the past seven years (it was previously eight years)
  • You need to reference a minimum of two projects referenced (previously it was a minimum of one project)
  • There are five competence question sets (there were previously 29 competences)
  • A talk or presentation is no longer required at interview (previously a 10-minute talk was required)
  • The interview can be completed face-to-face or via video link (the video link was not previously available)

How Provek can help?

Our unique offering to help you achieve the coveted RPP qualification includes:

  • A unique Readiness Checker
  • Unrivalled video content provided through the award-winning The PM Channel
  • Three support options so you can choose the most effective route through the process based on your personal preferences.
