If you didn’t already know – Learning People now provide official APM certifications as part of their career aligned education packages. But why have we chosen APM – and how can they help to progress your career?

Why get certified in project management?
Employers not only look for commitment – they look for credentials. Long gone are the days of ‘I’ve done it before’ being enough to secure your position, and here to stay are validations of your knowledge and skill sets. So, certifications not only amplify your CV but also add a required layer of certainty for employers looking to fill skill gaps.
How can APM certifications help progress my career?
APM are the Association for Project Management and are regarded as the leading domestic body for project management. APM training is aligned to the APM Body of Knowledge (APMBoK), which sets out the concepts, functions, and activities that contribute to ‘project-based working’.
Being the only chartered body for the project professional, the addition of APM certifications to your CV (and your skill sets) ensures you stand out from crowd - and displays a level of commitment to your industry while also validating the critical skills to deliver projects on time and on budget.
For example, the APM Body of Knowledge (APMBoK) reflects common UK practices such as the Time-Cost-Quality Triangle and Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). Having the knowledge of trusted methodologies and knowing how to implement them not only secures your place in industry as a project professional but also provides significant opportunity for collaboration and career development.
Why have Learning People chosen APM certifications?
Put simply, you asked - we listened. We’ve been helping students to start and progress their careers in project management for over ten years – and we constantly update our career aligned packages in line with industry demand. Not only do we listen to industry, we listen to students and APM was being requested from both sides.
