APM Project Fundamentals Qualification
If you are looking to gain a recognised project management qualification - the APM Project Fundamentals Qualification is the cheapest route to become an accredited project manager using online courses in project management. It is project management distance learning and you will not need to attend a classroom based event or exam - all material will be provided online for this project management qualification.
Sound too good to be true? Unlike other providers, we do not ask for a large up-front payment - it is just £95 + VAT to start your learning. We understand that it is often difficult to schedule your personal development around your work and life commitments.
When you are ready to take the examination a payment of £175 + VAT is required at a later date. The total amount payable to gain qualification would be £270 + VAT. When you are satisfied with your knowledge you can proceed to the examination by clicking the online payment button below.
Quite often we are asked 'Why is yours so cheap?' or 'Do I get the same qualification?'. For CITI this is about brand awareness and being remembered as a trusted partner when your project management career progresses, and yes it is the same qualification - whether called by the old name of APM Introductory Certificate or the new name APM Project Fundamentals Qualification.

You will need a computer with sound enabled, and a camera and microphone to communicate. You can visit the following link to test your equipment prior to booking the examination http://www.proctoru.com/testitout/
