AIPM endorses courses that consistently demonstrate outcomes aligned to a relevant Project Management methodology and reflecting industry standards and current best practice. These courses must show a commitment to professional development and elevation of industry practices.

AIPM does not endorse Training Providers. AIPM Course endorsement only applies to the courses being delivered.

Course types endorsed by AIPM: 

  • Vocational Education and Training (VET) qualifications derived from the BSB Training Package;

  • Higher Education programs leading to a Project Management qualification or award; and

  • Short Courses (non-accredited) aligned to Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) or equivalent alternative methodology and/or the Australian National Competency Standards for the Project Management Framework.

For further information, download our Guide to Endorsement for information about course endorsement, criteria and how to apply, or visit our FAQs.

Successful applicants are issued with a certificate for each endorsed course, and are entitled to use the AIPM endorsed course logo in advertising and course material, This differentiates your course from others, as being part of an elite list of project management courses and signals the right project management courses to prospective students.
