IPMA Registration

Introduction to IPMA Registration

The purpose of the IPMA Registration System is to provide IPMA Member Associations with an instrument to improve the communication between project managers or their organisations requesting competence improvement in project management –– and the organisers that administer and perform education programmes or training courses in project management.


IPMA Registration in a country implies that the level of competence development opportunity of the registered course/programme is scored by the organiser based on the National Competence Baseline (NCB) issued by the Member Association, and that the scoring is verified by the Member Association.

The logotype “IPMA Registered Training Course” is provided to training process of up to 60 hours – including preparation, training session, self-study, and practicing. 

The logotype “IPMA Registered Education Programme” is provided to education processes from 60 hours and up to 360 hours – again including preparation, training sessions, self-study, and practicing.

The logotype “IPMA Registered Extensive Programme” is provided to education processes from 360 hours and up to 1800 hours – again including preparation, training sessions, self-study, and practicing.

The logotypes include the Member Association’s country code and indicate both the association who has performed the registration process – and the geographical area where the IPMA Registration is valid.
