AIPMO’s globally renowned certifications are based on frameworks for structure and content. The content comes from research findings in PMO/Project Management and expert knowledge from international practitioners. AIPMO uses a “leading standard” concept, including the PMO Body of Knowledge, which has been tested, implemented, and improved over a three-year period. Therefore, we know it works well across all industries and organizations. Many esteemed organizations have entrusted us with enhancing their PMOs through our certification courses.

AIPMO offers three categories of certifications:

The PMO Core certifications were the first to be developed, but AIPMO soon realized that the majority of PMO and project personnel lack the necessary understanding of techniques required to succeed in their positions. This finding is also confirmed by various research studies.

The understanding of methods and artifacts is fundamental to every role in PMOs and in PPM, so the MA-IPMO certification was developed to address this gap. In addition, AIPMO uses a service management concept that is foundational to every part of the “Strategic Lifecycle Framework.” The concept behind the PMO Services and Capability book and the service strategy, service design, etc., needed to be addressed; therefore, the SC-IPMO master class certification was developed. Finally, PMO directors and consultants who impact every aspect of the organization should ideally be experts in frameworks, models, concepts, and organizational design. The third master class certification course called Consulting Frameworks addresses this need and is designated CF-IPMO.

PMOs offer a variety of services, each requiring an in-depth understanding of the topic. This demand has led to the development of a third category of certifications called Specialist Certifications. AIPMO’s partners, ACEs (Advisors, Consultants, Experts), have authored all the specialist courses on behalf of AIPMO. Currently, there are over 15 specialist courses available for both PMO and project members.
