All questions and answers on the subject "Self-test"

Can I repeat the appropriate self-test associated with my certification?

No, the self-test can only be taken once. This test is only used to determine your level of knowledge before taking the actual certification exam. However, if you do not pass the certification test, you can re-register for certification. The costs for the test are incurred again. If you do not pass this test either, you will have to wait 12 months. If you fail the test again, you will not be eligible for any further IAPM certification tests and will not be able to take it again.

Does the result of the self-test affect the certification test?

No, your self-test result is completely independent of your certification exam result. The self-test reflects your current level of knowledge and should help you to identify and compensate your deficits before taking the actual certification exam.

How to get an IAPM certification?

You prepare for your certification according to your desired method (preparation training and/or self-study). To check your level of knowledge, you can take a self-test online. To do so, please register via our website. You will then receive the corresponding invoice for the self-test. After payment of the invoice you will receive the access details and can pass your self-test. The IAPM evaluates it and sends you the result by e-mail, as well as information on the subject areas in which deficits still need to be compensated. If you feel sufficiently prepared, register for your certification. After checking your application you will receive your invoice. After payment of the invoice you will receive your access details for your certification by e-mail. You have six months from receipt of your access details to take your exam. After successfully passing the exam, you will receive your lifelong certificate by e-mail. If required, we will issue your certificate on high-quality paper for a contribution to expenses. 

If you plan to get the certification as Cert. Junior Project Manager (IAPM) or Cert. Junior Agile Project Manager (IAPM), the self-test is called "pre-test". This is already included in the certification fee for the certification as Cert. Junior Project Manager (IAPM) or Cert. Junior Agile Project Manager (IAPM). There is only one registration for pre-test and certification and therefore only one invoice. However, you will receive two access links, one for the pre-test and one for your certification.

Is the implementation of the self-test for certification mandatory?

No. The self-test is voluntary. We recommend that you use this facility to obtain an independent assessment of your knowledge prior to taking the actual certification exam. Please note that you can only take the self-test per certification process once.

What is a self-test?

The self-test is an autonomous test independent of the actual certification exam. Therefore you have the opportunity to prepare for certification in the form of a preparation test. The self-test is not an exam and the result does not affect your final exam result. It serves only for determing, in which learning areas there are still deficits in knowledge.

You can register here for a self-test associated with your desired certification.

After taking the self-test, you will receive an e-mail within three working days from us with the evaluation of your test and appropriate recommendations for action to close any knowledge gaps.

Please note that you can only take the self-test once and the access link for the self-test is valid for 6 months from receipt of the invoice.

In case of the certification as Cert. Junior Project Manager (IAPM) or Cert. Junior Agile Project Manager (IAPM), the self-test is called a "pre-test", the cost of the pre-test is already automatically included in the certification fee of the Cert. Junior Project Manager (IAPM) or Cert. Junior Agile Project Manager.

What is the difference between the pre-test and a self-test?

The preparation test for Cert. Junior Project Manager (IAPM) and Cert. Junior Agile Project Manager (IAPM) is called a pre-test. The preparation test for all other certifications is called the self-test. However, the purpose is the same: you can take a self-test or pre-test before the actual certification test in order to test your knowledge and correct certain deficits. In terms of content, the questions of the respective preparation test are coordinated with the desired certification. The costs for the pre-test are already included in the certification fee for the Cert. Junior Project Manager (IAPM) and the Cert. Junior Agile Project Manager (IAPM), for all other certifications there are separate costs for the self-test.
