APMP certification

APMP offers the world’s first Professional Certification Program for those working in a bid and proposal environment. The Program uses a process of examination and competency-based assessment, which is consistent and measured against worldwide best practice standards. With the Certification Program, employers provide their employees world-class bid and proposal management know-how, and they improve process quality.

There are three levels. Participants start at Foundation and advance to Practitioner, and then to Professional. Each level is tested in a different way, requires a minimum level of experience, and verification with a self-selected reference.
