How to apply for Certification

In order to to be admitted to the Institute of Project as a Certified Officer / Professional / Master / Director, you must first create an account on OPEN.

It is free to create an account and – as a bonus – gives you unlimited, unrestricted access to the our vast library of project management resources.

Once certified, employers will be able to validate your Certification by looking up your name or certificate number on our public database (you can also elect to hide your profile from this feature, if you like).

Once complete, you can follow the link to the enrolment form.
