managers with 7-10 years experience of managing projects or teams.

IAPM Elective Modules.

RPMO™ Registered Program Management Officer
Regardless of whether you are a freshly minted project manager, or a veteran, the ‘devil is in
the details’. The finest plans invented will be ineffective if the Control Process is faulty. IAPM
have worldwide experience in dealing with the results of lack of the Control Process in projects.
This elective addresses aspects of Control such as planning, administration, communication,
monitoring, reviewing, reporting and very importantly, closing out projects. We will teach you
about Team Structures and the steps required to successfully set up and manage a Project
Management Office.
RPM™ Registered Project Manager
This course is a foundation course designed to successfully launch aspiring project
managers from all industries and to ensure that all the Project Management fundamentals

skills and hone their knowledge using real life case study scenarios, blended with interactive
learning techniques and extensive study materials. All attendees will be able to demonstrate
a sound knowledge of Project Management principles, and to be able to function over a range
of projects.
We designed this as a comparable course to PMP (PMI) but with a continuing focus of
management as opposed to tools. The course can be adapted to cover tools too and this would
cover even more of the PMP syllabus.
PQMA™ Project Quality Management Analyst
Projects live or die on the quality of deliverables. One of the four pivots of any project (Scope /
Time / Cost / Quality), quality is arguably the hardest to define and control. IAPM will help you
understand the case for excellence, help you determine quality standards and controls,
measures and tools. Reporting on quality and taking corrective action to deviations is an
essential skill which IAPM will address. A must-do qualification for all Project Managers. Quality
begins at the Planning Stage and runs through the entire project lifecycle, and IAPM will teach
delegates how to integrate the initial concepts of Quality throughout the project.
CPRA™ Certified Project Risk Analyst

or implementing processes of risk management within the scope of projects. The programme

Skills in addition to Cost Concepts, Job and Process Costing, Quality Costs, Activity Based
Costing, Standard Costing, Organisational dimensions of costing, Budgeting and others.

board’ is essential. We all acknowledge that Project Management is about People and this

management and illustrate processes for auditing dispute management and improvements of
the process. All of this will be in the context of managing projects using other IAPM tools and
techniques.
CICM™ Certified International Change Manager
Although change is one of the few certainties of life, it is often met with fear and resistance in
the work place. Yet organisations have to change to adapt, improve and prepare for the future.
As today’s business environment is accelerating the pace of change, effective change
management has never been so important. Expertise on change management will drive forward
sustainable performance improvement to keep ahead of competitors, and meet ever changing
and demanding customer expectations.
CSSA™ Contract Services Selection Analyst
Seeking external services is one of the biggest and riskiest decisions a Project Manager can
make. IAPM has prepared this elective to help our Alumni through this process, dealing with
everything from defining business requirements, to preparing an EOI (Expression of Interest), to
preparing an RFP (Request for Proposals) to preparing evaluation methods. We explain generic
terms and conditions and the process (clearly your organization needs to seek localized legal /
regulatory advice on this), Service Level Agreements, effective negotiating and monitoring of
your selected solution / providers, we deal with issues such as ‘what should I outsource and
what should I keep in-house’ and finally, we discuss Team and Organisation Structures to
manage the new environment successfully.

CIPM™ Certified International Project Manager (Oil & Gas)
Combining all the elements of the internationally successful IAPM CIPMTM certification, this
specialized course takes a unique view of managing projects in the Oil & Gas industry. Industry
issues and risks, processes and procedures, metric and measures are all examined in the
context of managing a project, and differences/similarities between Oil & Gas and other project
types are examined. Multinational, cultural, ethical and professional influences are all
considered and delegates graduating from this course have all significantly benefitted from the
‘sharing experience’ with other delegates. Several Oil companies have adopted this course as
their official ‘in-house’ project management course.
CGIS™ Certified General Insurance Specialist
This course is specifically designed to raise awareness amongst insurance specialists about the
'bigger picture' of the insurance world and in areas where maybe they have not had any prior
experience themselves, but need to know more. Also, it internationalises insurance and brings a
global awareness of processes / practices / procedures / technology / terminology / best
practice and so forth that simply cannot be obtained from a single source (until now) nor from a
single work environment.
