How can I become an IAPM training partner?

Do you want to hold preparatory courses for traditional IAPM project management certificates (Certified Junior Project ManagerCertified Project ManagerCertified Senior Project Manager), agile project management certificates (Certified Agile Project ManagerCertified Senior Agile Project Manager) or international project management certificates (Certified International Project Manager)?
  • Depending on which option you choose, you will first have to obtain the corresponding IAPM certification to demonstrate that you have the relevant knowledge and experience in that field.
  • If you want to be a traditional project management trainer you will need Certified Senior Project Manager (IAPM) certification.

  • If you already have an equivalent certificate from another project management association, you can also request certificate recognition. In this case the IAPM checks whether your certificate corresponds to the IAPM certificate. Even if your certificate is recognised, you will still have to take the IAPM certification examination and achieve a minimum score of 75%. The examination fee is included in the trainer fee. This allows the IAPM to ensure that trainers satisfy its high knowledge standards. When your certificate has been recognised and you have received your IAPM certificate, fill in this form.

  • The information provided in the form is checked by the IAPM. If you satisfy all requirements, you will be sent an e-mail invoice which you have to pay within 10 days. When your payment is received, your trainer certificate will be sent to you by e-mail. 
  • Then you will have life-long, internationally recognised verification of your competence as trainer in your certified project management field.
