IAPM International Association of Project Managers


Certificate recognition

We recognize your existing certificate.

Once we have reviewed your documents you will be issued an equivalent IAPM certificate.
  • No recertification - indefinite validity
  • Follow-on IAPM certifications are possible 
    e.g. Certified International Project Manager (IAPM)
  • Internationally recognized and valid
  • Even ‘expired‘ certificates can be upgraded
  • No costs in the event of rejection

Here's what you have to do

  • You have IPMA, PMI, Scrum Al­li­an­ce or scrum.‚Äčorg certification, or a certificate issued by another organisation. Your certificate can have ‘expired’ because the IAPM believes that certification confirms a person’s knowledge status at a specific point in time (namely the time of certification).
  • Upload your certificate in conjunction with your personal details.
  • A certified Training Partner will perform a manual review and either recognize it or reject it.
  • If your certificate is recognized, you will receive an e-mail with the options “equivalent certificate“ or “higher certificate with additional information on project experience“, plus binding information on fees.
  • When you have paid the processing fee we will send you your personal IAPM certificate.
  • If your existing certificate is rejected you will not incur any costs.
