ABOUT THE PM² BASIC CERTIFICATION

The PM² Basic Certification is a Level-1 certification and an obvious choice for anyone who wishes to start their journey in project management with a basic project management certification. It is designed to confirm candidates’ basic understanding of general concepts of the PM² Methodology. The certification exam tests the level of the candidates’ understanding mainly on the what and when of the PM² Methodology, and secondarily on the who and how. The exam questions are based on the four pillars of PM² and the PM² Mindsets, focusing more on Lifecycle and Artefacts and less on Processes, Governance and Mindsets. 

For candidates to achieve the certification they must be familiar with these PM² concepts at an adequate level so that they will be able to follow the motions of a PM² project and communicate effectively with PM² team members and Project Managers.

ABOUT THE PM² METHODOLOGY

PM² is the standard Project Management Methodology of the European Commission. It aims to facilitate the effective management of a project’s complete lifecycle, and increase the quality of the project management process and project results. It incorporates elements from a wide range of globally accepted project management best practices as well as European Commission’s operational experience from many projects. PM² is a light and easy to implement methodology suitable for any type of project.

The European Commission has published PM² with an opensource license for anyone to use for the management of their projects, and is suitable for projects running within the EU Institutions or funded by EU programmes, but also for any type of projects in the private or public sector.
