Get APMP certified!

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.

Signature Certification
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.
The Capture Practitioner (CAP APMP) is dedicated for opportunity/capture professionals.

As opposed to the Signature Certification Scheme (Foundation, Practitioner, Professional, and Capture Practitioner) that is designed to cover the entire spectrum of Bid and Proposal Managers’ tasks, each Micro-Certification is focused on a single topic.
So, APMP’s Micro-Certifications are targeted at all those who deal with this topic, whether or not they are Bid or Proposal Managers.

The APMP Foundation-Level is open to non-APMP members, too.


The APMP Practitioner™-Level

At APMP Practitioner level, participants must go beyond a basic understanding of concepts and terms and prove that they can also put these into practice comprehensively.
The APMP Practitioner-Level is for those with three to seven years experience. It is open to all APMP members who have achieved Foundation-Level.
