This is the entry level for bids and proposals certification. To achieve this level you will have a minimum of one year of experience working in a proposals-related environment, and will be able to demonstrate your commitment to improving your skills in this area. This level of certification is the only level open to non-members of APMP.
There are two parts to the certification at APMP-Foundation™ level:
- You must provide the name of a referee to APMP, (for example your line manager, a peer or a commissioning client) who is prepared to confirm that you have worked for at least one year in a bids and proposals environment.
- You must pass a multiple-choice examination, by answering at least 42 out of 75 questions correctly.
