Certification

APMP certification distinguishes members as certified proposal professionals at three ascending levels:
  • Foundation
  • Practitioner
  • Professional

For more details of what’s involved at each level, download the APMP Certification Syllabus.

To achieve certification at Foundation and Practitioner level, you have the option for self-study or enrol with one of our Approved Training Organisations (ATOs).

Once ready, you may take the exam either:

For Professional level, we have a volunteer team of seasoned Bid and Proposal experts who will coach you through the process.

Continuing Professional Development

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) ensures that those who hold APMP certification demonstrate ongoing commitment to professional growth and development, a criterion of all professional organisations.

To maintain certification levels individuals are required to participate in a CPD programme, earning Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits. CEUs can be gained by certified individuals through obtaining and developing a wide range of knowledge, skills and experience, which are not normally acquired during initial training or routine work and which together develop and maintain competence to practice.

For example, CEUs are gained by attending (or indeed presenting at) APMP UK chapter meetings and the annual conference or through contributing to the success of APMP UK in any other recognised and valued manner.

CEUs are collected over a two-year timeframe. Foundation level requires a total of 20 units to be collected whilst Practitioner and Professional levels require 40 units.
