Complaints and appeals


Should a candidate wish to lodge a complaint or an appeal, they are requested to download the guide and appropriate form. Complete the form and submit it to the head of the certification body.


An appeal is a formal request for reconsideration or review of a decision made by the IPMA-SA Certification Body.

A complaint is an expression of dissatisfaction by an individual or organisation to the Certification Body. The complaint may be related to any person or situation involved in the certification process.



The re-certification period for levels A to D is due 5 years after initial certification. IPMA re-certification follows the same process for levels A, B and C; however, re-certification for Level D requires the candidate to rewrite the Level D exam.

It is therefore recommended that Level D candidates consider certification at Level C or higher. Should you wish to apply for re-certification please contact us via the contact form.

Certified professionals are registered

If you are looking for project, programme and portfolio managers who have proven competences, look for IPMA certified professionals. Certified professionals are registered in the international database.
