Because certification verifies value

The best companies have the best project managers

~ McKinsey & Co.

Projects, programs, and portfolios are the delivery mechanisms for your strategic initiatives. Your organisation’s strength in project, program, and portfolio management is a key contributor to its profitability.

When it comes to performance, you recognise that clients want both technical excellence and ability to deliver according to plan.

PMAS, through our independent Certification Board, offers advanced certifications for project, program and portfolio managers. Our certification assessments are:

  • Performance-based. We look at the actual, on-the-job performance of your managers. We examine their documentary evidence and conduct an intensive, face-to-face interview to verify that they understood what they were doing and why.
  • Done by experienced project, program, and portfolio managers. Each of our assessors has years of experience as a project, program, or portfolio manager. Their expertise complements our structured assessment process.
  • Internationally recognized. Our certification credentials are recognized by the International Project Management Association (IPMA). IPMA has certified more individuals as project, program, and portfolio managers than any other organization in the world.
  • Compatible with your approach to managing projectsWe evaluate results, not compliance with a proprietary standard. We accept your forms, your tools, your processes.
  • The best value for the moneyOther PPPM credentials typically require 35-40 hours of training that can add thousands of dollars to the true cost of ownership. And most experts recommend another 40-50 hours of personal study which further increases the real cost of other credentials.


Projects, programs and portfolios are the delivery mechanism for your strategic initiatives. Ensure that you have competent, qualified people to implement your strategy.

Reward your staff with an advanced certification. This provides value for your organisation and demonstrates commitment to your team, professionalism and to results.  

Advanced, performance-based credentials can be a valuable selling tool when bidding on a project. Get the performance edge for your projects and engagements.

Surveys show that certified project, program and portfolio managers get paid more. What else do you need to know? Our credentials are internationally recognised.
