With more than 55,000 members in 50 countries, the International Project Management Association (IPMA) originates from the European Project Management Association. The German representative is the German Association for Project Management (GPM), which has in excess of 5700 members. Its certification body PM-ZERT issues GPM-accredited project management certificates. These include the following certificates based on complementary levels or expertise:
We offer preparation seminars for these levels. The seminars are modular in structure. We have observed hundreds of participants who have processed the material more easily with a modular program. This means more efficient learning and a lower overall investment.
The process of awarding certificates is the responsibility of the official GPM certification body, which holds open rounds of certification. These take place on a regular basis throughout the year.
6-9 months (hours investment for private study, authorization and examination)
4-6 months (60-100 hours investment for private study, authorization and examination)
4-6 months (40-60 hours investment for private study, authorization and examination)
If you’d like certification and want to prepare effectively, why not attend one of our preparation seminars? In-house seminars are more in tune with your previous experience and training — and preparation seminars can be adapted accordingly. Seminars are available from as few as 5-6 participants.
Please note the GPM/IPMA candidate requirements. You can find more details on the Examination pages.
