The APM-PMQ exam is an online three-hour exam paper with an additional 15 minutes reading time at the start, where candidates must answer ten from sixteen questions. The cost of the exam is included in the course price. The exam can only be taken online, using your own webcam and microphone (valid ID required) which allows you to take the exam at home or your office at a convenient time without the need for a physical invigilator. Subject to availability – we would recommend booking your exam at least 3 weeks in advance.
