How does Registered Project Manager (RegmPM) Certification work?

When you undertake our project management certification you will be assessed by a senior project leader, called an assessor, on your workplace experience up to that point. You will submit project evidence, which will be reviewed by your assessor, and you will be interviewed on your experience to date. There is no need to sit a project management exam or undertake a course, such as with universities or the PMP certification. To be certified, you need to have a minimum amount of demonstrated work experience and evidence at the level you are applying, confirmed by our assessors.
