IAPM's certification process

The IAPM certification process is based on the IAPM PM Guides* in their current version. The knowledge bases were developed in cooperation with an international panel of scientists and project managers. They are continuously adapted to international standards and findings.

However, whether the prospective certificate holder has acquired his knowledge from the PM Guides or other documents is irrelevant for admission to the examination. The IAPM supports the independent preparation for the certification exams.
