The simple project management knowledge test, called the Project Management Knowledge Quotient (PMKQ), comes in several versions for project mangers and practitioners to test their knowledge of project management concepts, terms and methodologies. The PM Knowledge test can be accessed through the PMKQ website at http://cepm-
According to David Pells, Managing Editor at PMForum, “I thought that I was pretty knowledgeable about project management. But when I took these simple tests, I found some areas where I either answered a question wrong or needed to refresh my knowledge.”
Designed to be a first step in the project management learning process, PMKQ involves a set of questions and problems related to managing projects that a well experienced or well educated project manager should know the answers to. The test comes in three versions – Yellow Belt, Green Belt and Black Belt.
Yellow Belt is a simple test of basic project management knowledge, with registration valid for seven days. Green Belt test includes more topics and questions, with registration valid for 10 days. Black Belt covers more topics, with registration valid for 15 days. A Composite version is also available, with registration valid for 30 days to allow maximum exposure and benefits.
“It’s probably a good idea to test your knowledge before signing up for some expensive training,” added Pells. “This approach might also be a good idea for an organization or PMO that wants to assess the current knowledge of project teams members or employees.”
PMKQ is one of the products offered through the PMForum – CEPM partnership. PMForum announced on 23 February 2010 a partnership with the Centre for Excellence in Project Management (CEPM) of New Delhi, India to offer a set of high quality, low cost, online project management courses, including CEPM's renowned Certificate in Project Management (CIPM).
