Certification Decision Process:
All Levels, All Domains

cert decision processThis simple diagram illustrates IPMA-USA's Certification Decision Process.

If the candidate has been recommended for certification, they will be notified officially by email and will receive a copy of their official certificate via surface mail. IPMA-USA will also notify IPMA to add their name to the public database of certificants maintained on IPMA's website.

If the candidate has not been recommended for certification, they will be notified of that decision. The applicant has the right to appeal that decision, and can invoke the Appeals Process.
