How do I get a certificate of completion?

Upon completion of the course you will be provided with a digital certificate. For examination courses, AIPMM will mail your certificate upon their completion of grading your exam. Be sure to provide AIPMM with the correct shipping address to ensure delivery.

How long are the classes?

The classes begin 8:30am to 5:30pm, unless otherwise noted.

Are meals included?

Not unless otherwise noted. There will be a break for lunch around noon and two 15-minute breaks; one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

What is the typical participant dress at these classes?

Business casual, unless there is very bad weather, e.g. snow, and then you should dress appropriately.

What do I need to bring to the course?

You are encouraged to disconnect during the training. You will be supplied with the course books and handouts. You are welcome to take notes on the material directly or may bring your electronic devices to take notes. In-person certification courses that have an exam on the final day you are required to bring a laptop for the examination. The following are the browser and system requirements from AIPMM: Firefox, and Chrome on both Windows and Mac OS are supported and recommended for the examination. Other browsers may work if they support Adobe Flash. Note that Internet Explorer and Safari are not supported for Windows or Mac OS.

What happens if I have a meeting scheduled during the class hours?

We ask that all cell phones and email be completely turned off during class and that students use the numerous breaks and lunch to take care of any business. If attendees need to leave class they are free to do so but we ask that they leave quietly and not disturb the class.

We highly recommend that attendees not do this for a number of reasons:

  • They may miss information that is critical for the certification exams
  • The instructor will not spend class time reviewing anything they miss, so if material is dependent upon something they have missed it may be difficult for them to understand it
  • Additionally, the certificates are delivered at the end of the course

Who is my trainer?

All of our courses are delivered by seasoned senior consultants that have many years of experience.
