ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024:2012 Compliance

AIPMM Professional certification reassures employers that applicants have the required knowledge, skills, and competencies for the job. AIPMM complies with ANSI/ISO/IEC 17024:2012.  These are the general requirements for bodies operating certification of persons and has become a benchmark for quality certification programs, enhancing the integrity, confidence, and mobility of certified professionals.

We Offer Certifications Not Certificates

Certification includes an experience and education component and requires passing an exam administered by a certifying body. It allows a practitioner to put letters after his or her name (CPM, CPMM, CBM, etc.). The certification body publishes a body of knowledge (for AIPMM it is The Guide to the Product Management and Marketing Body of Knowledge®).

The certification is not tied to one training organization and generally has a network of independent training partners who conduct certification preparation training.

A certificate program typically indicates attendance or completion of a proprietary course or series of courses with a specific focus. The result demonstrates knowledge of proprietary content at the end of a specific period of time that is not published for review.
