There are 5 levels of RegPM:
CPPE        Certified Practising Portfolio Executive
CPPD       Certified Practising Project Director
CPSPM     Certified Practising Senior Project Manager*
CPPM       Certified Practising Project Manager*
CPPP        Certified Practising Project Practitioner 

   *  Eligible candidates can complete CPPM & CPSPM. via a single assessment.

Processes vary depending upon the RegPM level and whether or not the assessment includes a qualification (such as a Diploma of Project Management).  

Alan's approach including briefing, guidance, support & feedback

  • Offer advice regarding level (CPPP, CPPM, CPSPM, CPPD, CPPE) pre-application to AIPM
  • Provide options for sensitive & non-accessible evidence (redact, referee reports, videocon etc)
  • Appreciate candidates situations including where they work in organisations without methodology
  • Clarify evidence requirements (validity, currency, range, quantity, quality…)
  • Support planning and ‘self-management’
  • Point candidates in the 'right' direction(s)
  • Give constructive feedback, when assessing drafts & final evidence
  • Offer guidance when candidates are stuck or have ‘gaps’ in experience or knowledge
  • Feedback strengths and suggested areas for ‘improvement’
  • Respond typically within 24-28 hours (depending upon commitments including travel)
