These days, knowledge is acquired with a wide range of methods and media. More and more ‘traditional‘ learning methods are being replaced by modern ones. The IAPM doesn’t prescribe any one method. It leaves the choice of method up to the certification candidate.

The IAPM provides a ‘self test‘ which isn’t dependent on participation in a course and can be taken online. The self test enables the ascertainment of any knowledge deficits so that pre-certification learning requirements can be met.

The IAPM certification examination is an online examination. It has to be completed within a time limit and the candidate is required to provide an affidavit confirming that no examination aids will be used. The examination is neutral and objective because no ‘human factor’ is involved in the assessment process. Candidates can resit the examination a limited number of times - depending on the certification level.
The IAPM issues a numbered certificate to candidates who pass the examination which confirms their level of knowledge at the time of the examination. A certificate’s authenticity - and therefore the holder’s level of knowledge - can be verified online by entering the certificate holder’s name and certification level.
written document with online validation
The certificate officially documents the holder’s knowledge and can be used for various purposes such as in job applications, in a professional environment or by the company as verification of employees‘ competence in customer acquisition or communication processes.
