The PM² EU’s Accredited Certification Agent (ACA) Programme enables you to make the most out of a complete series of multi-levelled certifications on PM², the EC’s standard project management methodology. Our ACAs can request vouchers for any PM² Certification they wish at a special members’ and partners rate for their clients to participate in the online exam.
Being lean and easy-to-use and, at the same time, open-source, free and fully customizable, PM² is a powerful tool appropriate for any industry, project type and level of experience. The adoption of the methodology has been proven to maximize the effectiveness, efficiency and success of the thousands of projects and programmes undertaken by European Union Institutions, Member State Public administrations and private organisations.
At PM² EU we have worked with contributors to the PM² Methodology to design the PM² Certification scheme, a comprehensive and open to all Certification Programme developed with the highest quality standards that aims to attest to candidates’ understanding of PM². With each certification representing a different level of education and experience, there is a variety of options for both professionals and beginners.
As currently more and more EU funded programmes either require or recommend the use of PM², the EC’s standard project management methodology and the most preferred one when it comes to the management of EU Funds, the capacity to implement the methodology is of essence for anyone involved with publicly funded or subsidised projects. Adopt PM² for the management of your projects and demonstrate your commitment to high quality project management and efficient investment of EU funds.
During the last years, a constantly increasing number of organisations is attempting to improve their project management efficiency by becoming PM² enabled. The combination of the methodology’s simplicity with the vast pool of available artefacts and tools, makes it easily and quickly applicable in an organisational level. By implementing PM² at an organisational level, you demonstrate the PM² knowledge of your Project Managers and project staff and certify alignment with PM² best practices.
Individuals acquiring a PM² Certification can prove attainment of core PM² knowledge and commitment to continuous professional development, while benefitting from a higher pay scale, more job opportunities, job security and career progression. With a PM² Certification in your hands, you can work in any industry and project type, anywhere in the world.

An exam review can be requested when a candidate believes that a problem or an event has prevented them
from successfully completing or succeeding a PM² Alliance Certification Exam. Should the request for review be
directly related to one or more exam questions, the details of the problem must be clearly explained, and the
necessary information provided (i.e. e-Voucher or Test number, question number and/or a description of the
question). This will allow for the PM² Alliance Certification Reviews & Appeals Committee (CRAC) to identify the
question and review the claim.
An appeal can only be made on ground of the following:
• exam platform irregularity during the exam
• specific question irregularity
• unfair dismissal or exam suspension
In both cases, the request should be submitted formally to the attention of the PM² Alliance Certification
Reviews & Appeals Committee (CRAC) within 5 working days of the exam’s date/incident. The PM² Alliance
will acknowledge the receipt of the request for review or appeal automatically, will conduct all necessary
validation in a constructive, impartial and timely manner, and will provide an answer within 10 working days.
The outcome decision of the Committee will be final. A record of the complaint, including any subsequent
action(s) taken, and the decision made will be maintained by the PM² Center. All information pertaining to the
complaint will remain confidential.
Should the PM² Alliance Certification Reviews & Appeals Committee (CRAC) acknowledge a mistake in a
question, the procedure will be to remove the question from the exam and the candidate’s final score will be
recalculated based on the remaining number of valid questions. The PM² Center Certification Reviews &
Appeals Committee (CRAC) is comprised of the following three members:
1. PM² Alliance Certifications Coordinator
2. PM² Center Expert 1 and Expert 2
Please also note the following:
▪ Candidates accept the rules of the examination once they start an exam, therefore, appeals against
the exam rules as published on the exam invitations and communicated at the beginning of the exam
session, will result a negative outcome.
▪ In order to safeguard the credibility of the exam and its fairness to future candidates, the wording of
the questions and their answers will not be communicated.
