Continuing Professional Development (CPD) has traditionally been defined from a student’s perspective and has been measured in terms of student-teacher contact hours. However, in project management today, that is too narrow a definition: there are many other ways to develop as a professional, and some are superior to the traditional modes.
As a result, IPMA-MY has developed a schedule of Point Values which awards credit for both student and non-student activities. Relative values were derived from an open survey promoted on LinkedIn. CPD points for non-student activities should be viewed as “classroom hour equivalents.”
You do not have to submit supporting documents (e.g., a course completion certificate for a training program, a certificate of appreciation for a presentation, a book cover with your name) with your application for re-certification. However, you should have copies available in case your application is audited.
All candidates for re-certification require at least 175 points.
Candidates certified in 2017 or later require at least 35 points per year.
