PM-Partners group AIPM Assessment Programme is designed to provide project practitioners with the opportunity to prove their capability through their project work and to have their existing competencies recognised by attaining AIPM Certification.
The programme consists of an assessment process that enables participants to demonstrate competency in a logical, orderly and user friendly manner.
The AIPM’s Certified Practicing Project Director (CPPD) certification requires a Program Manager to demonstrate application of the relevant AIPM competencies across multiple concurrent projects. The certification is suitable for Senior Project Managers and Program Managers who are required to demonstrate they direct and guide project managers.
CPPD certification is gained by completing an assessment task where you compile documentary evidence which demonstrates the AIPM’s CPPD competencies as summarised in the Typical Evidence Guide PDF which can be sent to you at your request. Once you have compiled your Portfolio of Evidence you are required to present it during a one-on-one interview between you and our assessor.
You do not need to have personally authored each of the documents you submit in your Portfolio of Evidence, however you are required to see that they are done and provide direction and guidance of the process.
Each certification level is competency-based and consequently the PM-Partners group program focuses upon assessing and recognising competencies acquired over time via a formal workplace assessment process.
The competency standards against which the award is granted are based on extensive research into national and international best practice in project management at the levels of work found in most private and public sector workplaces. This research showed that these levels equate to levels 4, 5 and 6 of the Australian Standards Framework (ASF) which, when aligned to the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), are at Certificate IV, Diploma, and Advanced Diploma levels respectively as detailed in the following:
