Why does the IAPM recognize certificates from other organisations?

The certification as Cert. International Project Manager (IAPM) requires an IAPM Certificate (Cert. (Senior) Project Manager (IAPM) or Cert. (Senior) Agile Project Manager (IAPM)).

With a certificate recognition you will get a certificate without having to re-take an exam, so you can qualify for the Cert. International Project Manager (IAPM) exam. But certificate recognition does not oblige you to be certified as the Cert. International Project Manager (IAPM).

An IAPM certificate remains valid and does not need to be recertified for a lifetime. The certificate of another PM organisation can still be kept.

Please note: The recognition of certificates of participation/ completion or certificates which were achieved without an examination is not possible.

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.
