A Certified Project Director (CPD) has the proven ability to lead multiple, complex projects, programs and portfolios of work. They make high-level autonomous decisions and use initiative and judgement to navigate a diverse range of activities that span functions, organisations, regions and cultures.

The CPD certification mark and post-nominals are currently being accredited to explicitly defined international standards that we are regularly audited against. Our secure, hologram protected, bank-note quality certificates further prevent the fraudulent passing off of candidate awards.

The whole program was professional from start to the finish and the trainers were excellent in helping me to understand how to effectively use the learnings into my workplace.

That depends on where you work…

In 2015, the median salary for a project director in Australia was AU$200,000 per year – in the USA, it was US$135,000.

Interestingly, having even a basic certification or qualification in project management added around 20% to the value of of an individual’s salary.

The best country to work as a project manager is the United Kingdom (Australia is ranked #2, and the UAE is #3), while the worst is Egypt. If you want to know what a project manager usually earns in your country, just ask us!

For a small fee, candidates can also be assessed in their native language. Please contact us directly for more info.
The CPD certification currently costs AU$1,750 to complete.

You can either pay online when you complete the enrolment form, or request an invoice (if, for example, you would like your employer to pay on your behalf).

CPD candidates are given detailed feedback at every stage of the certification process, as well as the reasonable opportunity to resubmit work to the requisite standard.

If an assessor feels that you are not likely to achieve that standard through resubmission, they will recommend ways in which you can further your academic and professional development, and defer your enrolment until such time as you are ready to continue.

There is no additional fee or financial penalty for this deferment.

The CPD certification is the most rigorous skills and knowledge-based certification in the world today. By taking a 21st century approach to learning and assessment, it also is the most durable and cost-effective option for experienced project directors looking to take the next step in their career.

If this is you – especially if you speak a second language – we would love to hear from you!
