The Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) is the professional association for people working in any sales environment where formal bidding and tendering takes place. APMP certification is the global standard for developing and demonstrating proposal management competency. As an Authorised Training Organisation, Sixfold can help you prepare for and take the Foundation level examination.
The APMP accredits its members at three levels of increasing competence; Foundation, Practitioner and Professional. Once certified, recent salary surveys have shown that these members earn an average of 15% more than their peers.
The survey results are very compelling. For specific levels of accreditation, progressing from Foundation to Practitioner level typically attracts a 14% pay rise, whilst advancing to Professional level leads to a further 30% increase.
To start you down this road, we will guide you through the Foundation level syllabus and the examination itself, maximising your chances of passing first time. Should you wish, you can choose to attend the course and then take the APMP Foundation level examination online, at a later date.
Suitable for: Sales professionals who wish to enhance their ability to succeed at winning formal bids and tenders, including public sector bids.
Duration: One full day – typically 09:00 to 17:00 or 09:30 to 17:30 depending upon the venue.

Testimonials to our instructors’ ability to deliver engaging and effective courses
“Not only was it of enormous value to me, it was delivered in a very relaxed manner that made it easy to absorb. I have taken away a number of very important actions to implement that will make a real difference to our business. Truly stimulating”
Nick Pinkney – Manager Bid Support
“I enjoyed a super day led by you last Thursday… I have the ultimate solution for successful bid teams- delegate to you and your company!”
Mary Fielding – Bid Director
“Our bid win rate was about 1:5. As a direct result of Sixfold’s intervention our win rate has increased to better than 1:2. This significant improvement has made a real and substantial difference to the MidlandHR bottom line. We no longer strive to get ‘quality bids’ out on time, but to get winning bids out (on time of course).”
Jamie Colville – Bid Team Manager
