The Managing Director of Amanuensis, James Whitby, has successfully taken the exam to become a Certified Project Management Associate (IPMA level D). This internationally recognised qualification is administered in Switzerland by the Association for the Certification for Persons in Management (VZPM) according to ISO 17024. The International Project Management Association (IPMA) was founded in 1965 in Switzerland as a non-profit organization to promote project management and set professional standards, and now has member associations in 55 countries.
Level D is the lowest of the four certificates of competence issued by the IPMA’s member organizations; it recognises ‘comprehensive and in-depth specialist project management knowledge’ but does not require extensive experience. The examination process tests both knowledge (multiple choice questions) and the application of knowledge (written answers).
