This is the senior level of certification. An APMP-Professional™ has the necessary experience to produce winning bids and proposals and can demonstrate their commitment to furthering the profession and to personal continuous professional development. This level of certification is only open to APMP members who have achieved APMP-Practitioner™ level status.
There are three parts to the certification at the APMP-Professional™ level:
- You must provide the name of a referee to the APMP (such as your line manager, a peer or a commissioning client) who is prepared to provide an independent assessment of your behaviour and attitude. You will be asked to provide a referee name and email address immediately after your registration.
- You must provide the APMP with a completed Proposal Profession Impact Paper™ (PPIP)™ providing evidence of how you have furthered your organisation or the profession.
- You must participate in a 45-minute Panel Interview (telephone or face-to-face), where you will present and discuss your PPIP™.
APMP-Professional™ Reference Details
As part of the APMP-Professional™ level certification process we require an independent assessment of your behaviour and attitude, particularly in the areas of managing and motivating others to carry out required actions in a proposals environment.
The assessment comprises a detailed evaluation of nine Key Competency Areas (KCA). Individual competencies within these KCAs are described and your referee will be asked to rate you based upon pre-defined statements. The questionnaire should not take your referee more than 30 minutes to complete.
