Certification Program

The APMP offers the world's first Professional Certification Program for Proposal Management Professionals. The Program uses a process of competency-based assessment that is consistent and fair, as well as measured against world best practice standards. There are three levels of professional certification:

  • APMP-Foundation Level

  • APMP-Practitioner Level

  • APMP-Professional Level


You must achieve the levels in order (Foundation, Practitioner, Professional). The type of assessment and what it tests is different at each level.
