What is the difference between the IAPM and other project management associations?

The IAPM is committed to imparting practical knowledge. It deliberately distances itself from purely academic teaching content and is oriented towards what is required for active project work. This also includes the compatibility of the examination preparation with everyday work. The reduction of the teaching content to the essentials as well as self-organised learning make this possible. In addition, IAPM avoids costly recertification. An IAPM certification is valid for life, just like a university degree, driver's licence or high school diploma does not have to be repeated. Furthermore, the IAPM wants to give as many people as possible the opportunity to afford a certification. Therefore, the respective citizenship or the gross domestic product of this country decides on the amount of the costs for the certification.

The IAPM certification

The certification can be taken via a reputable online examination procedure. The costs are based on the gross domestic product of your country of origin.


Which certification suits you best?

For better readability, we usually only use the generic masculine form in our texts. Nevertheless, the expressions refer to members of all genders.
