The Association for Project Management (often referred to as APM) is a registered charity in the United Kingdom, which aims to develop and promote the professional disciplines of project management and programme management, through a programme called the "Five Dimensions of Professionalism". The APM provides products and services including registered membership and qualifications, events, publications and online services. APM headquarters is located at Princes Risborough in Buckinghamshire where they employ 54 people.
APM Qualifications are designed with the intention of demonstrating to employers, clients and suppliers that the recipient is a skilled and committed project professional. Through alignment with IPMA's 4 level Certification programme they also aim to provide international recognition. APM currently has over 19 000 individual members and 500 corporate members.
APM Registered Project Professional (RPP) is a professional pan-sector standard issued by the APM to project and programme management professionals. To obtain the RPP designation candidates must demonstrate the capabilities of a responsible leader, have the ability to manage a complex project and use appropriate tools, processes and techniques.
