Certified PM² Foundation 3.0.1 by PM² GROUP – exam voucher
PM² is a project management methodology developed by the European Commission. Its purpose is to enable project managers (PMs) to deliver solutions and benefits to their organizations by effectively managing the entire lifecycle of their projects. PM² has been created with the needs of European Union Institutions and projects in mind but is transferrable to projects in any organization.
Using PM² is especially effective for managing projects within:
- European institutions
- Public administrations and non-governmental organizations
- Service providers to these administrations and institutions
- European coordinated or funded projects
- Private companies with a significant project portfolio
The PM² GROUP Foundation voucher provides access to the foundation certification program. This program is the first public certification program created based on the guidelines of the certification program for internal EU staff.
How do I achieve my certification?
This product includes an exam voucher that provides access to 12 attempts to the PM² Foundation practice exam and one attempt to the official and official PM² Foundation. You will receive the PM² Foundation certificate and social badge when you pass the official exam.
