IPMA International Project Management Association

The IPMA Academy Project

The project has started in April 2018, with the purpose to strengthen the IPMA education and training ecosystem, by integrating and improving all educational activities undertaken by IPMA.
Currently, it is composed of the IPMA registration system, the IPMA ICB curricula and the training activities undertaken by different remits/groups of IPMA. By integrating these components under the IPMA means that all educational and training related activities will be organized and performed in a transparent manner, by complying with common regulations and guidelines and by being consistent with the IPMA standards. For a better coordination of the IPMA Academy activities, an efficient IT infrastructure will be designed and developed. In this way, this new ecosystem will serve better the actual and future Member Associations, Certification Bodies, and other IPMA stakeholders, including task forces, process and project offices members and the suppliers, etc.

The main aspects undertook by of the IPMA Academy Project are:

– those related to the IPMA Registration System
– those related to the redesign of external IPMA courses/ training and development of new ones (advanced courses, expert seminars, trainings of trainers, IPMA’s product-related training, etc.)
– integration and execution of IPMA’s internal training, developing education and training resources and administration.

The IPMA Academy project team is composed of Gholamreza Safakish, Vladimir Obradovic, Morten Fangel, Ewa Zawadzka, Miguel Carvalho e Melo, Giuseppe Pugliese, and Constanta Bodea.

In the first months of the project implementation, the project team members achieved significant progress in developing the guidelines and regulations for the readjusted IPMA registration system, the guidelines and regulation for the Advanced Courses, expert seminars and, IPMA product-related training. The agreement between IPMA and member association for providing training services, with the price policy included and the contract for training services between IPMA and the trainer was submitted to ExBo for further revision and approval.
