(Washington, DC) — May 31, 2018 – The APMP Board of Directors voted earlier this month at its Bid & Proposal Con show in San Diego, CA to establish the Charlie Divine APMP Certification Scholarship program to benefits dozens of potential APMP certification participants annually. The program is designed to recognize Mr. Divine, in perpetuity, who has made a career out of promoting professional development for bid and proposal professionals globally.

“Charlie Divine is a legend in our industry and has contributed more to APMP certification and membership than anyone we know,” said Jamie Ninneman, CF. APMP and Chair of the Board of Directors. “This scholarship will benefit both new and existing people in the industry who want to further commit to the professional growth through APMP certification – something that Charlie has championed for decades,” he said. The Charlie Divine APMP Certification Scholarship program will be held annually and encourage anyone from any chapter to apply for an APMP certification scholarship. Participants will be required to tell why they want or need the scholarship and the entries will be judged by a panel to determine one scholarship recipient from each chapter. Candidates who win the scholarship will have the opportunity to receive it onstage from Charlie Divine at APMP’s Bid & Proposal Con 2019 in Orlando, FL. “For the last 14 years, Charlie has been working with professionals in our industry to help them grow in their profession, earn more money in their chosen field and better their professional lives through APMP certification, said Rick Harris, CF. APMP and APMP’s executive director. “We can’t wait to launch this scholarship program to continue and celebrate the tremendous work that Charlie has done,” he said. Mr. Divine will work with APMP’s Board of Directors to establish the scholarship’s award criteria and the scholarship program will start taking applications launch in the fall of 2018. The first recipients will be announced at Bid & Proposal Con 2019 in Orlando, Fl. Any APMP member in good-standing is eligible for the certification scholarship throug their chapter. Only one application will be received per member and the certification must be used within one year of the time that it is awarded.

APMP Practitioner Training Day8th October

Why should you pursue Practitioner Level? APMP Practitioner Level Certification demonstrates to peers, clients and managers that: You are committed to improving your professional skills through a rigorous examination of your experience record against the global standard You have a mastery of best practices and can effectively lead/coach teams in their use You can build and manage a cohesive team that can communicate a consistent winning strategy and positively impact the customer’s decision You are positioned to be among the top in your profession The Practitioner Certification level is appropriate for experienced proposal professionals with three or more years in profession. Practitioner candidates often have a leadership role in their organisations.

The APMP Practitioner workshop provided me with the uninterrupted opportunity to think about my bidding career, particularly tasks I'd undertaken that counted as relevant evidence of competence achievement. After just this one-day session, I was really motivated to start writing my evidence pieces because I was so much clearer about the assessors' expectations. Alan's ability to put the mind at ease is second to none and Pippa's advice, as a fellow bidder in the civil engineering sector, was invaluable. If you're wondering whether or not to attend this workshop, my advice is to go for it!

The workshop provided a clear view of what I needed do to attain practitioner qualification. This was very helpful and motivated me to go the distance!
