Associate Project Manager EPA

The Associate Project Manager EPA is the end-point assessment for this Level 4 standard.

An associate project manager utilises resources with suitable skills, qualifications, experience and knowledge to work together in a motivated and integrated team, with clearly defined reporting lines, roles, responsibilities and authorities. Projects can be defined and delivered within different contexts, across diverse industry sectors. They can be large or small. An associate project manager knows what needs to be achieved, how it will be achieved, how long it will take and how much it will cost, and works with the project team to achieve the required outcomes. Associate project managers need good planning, organisation, leadership, management and communication skills.

Dependent upon the size of the organisation and the complexity of projects, associate project managers’ job titles will vary, but typically they can include: assistant project manager, junior project manager, project team leader.
