The Exclusive Global Certifying Body of the:


The AAPM ® was founded in 1996, via a consolidation between the CEC/PME Project Manager E-Business Committee (PME) and the Founders Advisory Committee of the Original Chartered Condor Falcon Graduate Institute of Leadership Development ™. Although our vision, origins and founding philosophy go back to the government management standards and protocols in the USA from 1940s, the AAPM ® and IPMC is newer in its present formation due to the changes in leadership and governmental management standards. The AAPM was originally established in as a professional organization for graduate students, IT Managers, Government Employees, Military Officers, and Analysts. The Condor Falcon Management Institute was founded to examine strategic leadership and planning issues for graduates professionals and leaders and to award the leadership, project management and consulting awards and designations. The AAPM ® Graduate Board currently recognizes over 12,000 Executive Project Managers, PhDs, Masters Degree Holders, government officials, and consultants as executive members in over 141 nations. As there had not been a graduate professional project manager organization specifically for Executives, MBAs, PhDs and accredited degree holders, The AAPM ™ has met this need and become the organization of choice for highly educated individuals or industry experts because AAPM requires an accredited college degree or graduate equivalent for membership and certification. The AAPM receives its license, sanction and authority from the Charter and Bylaws of The IPMC International Project Management Commission.

Furthermore, AAPM ® has several Primary global certifications available for its membership which are the: MPM ™ Master Project Manager, CIPM ™ Certified International Project Manager, PME ™ Project Manager E-Business, CPRM ™ Certified Project Risk Manager, MQM ™ Master of Quality Management or Master Quality Manager, CPE ™ Certified Planning Engineer, and CEC ™ Certified E-Commerce Consultant. The AAPM also offers several other specialist designations in: CEA ™ E-Marketing, CHRA ™ Human Resources, CPC ™ Process Consulting, and CSA ™ Service Analysis.

The AAPM ® is the regulatory body for the much sought after AAPM ™ Designations and Credentials. The AAPM ™ Executive Designation Programs provide the assurance that the holder has met the suggested criteria for graduate credentials set out in the Ibanez US Supreme Court Decision and Dicta. Further, the AAPM board certification requires meeting 6 different levels of global criteria including ethics and our global body of standards which are the 1st Standards specifically based on the methodology used by global government agencies and departments. Acceptance into the AAPM is a high distinction and requires the holder to possess a graduate level portfolio of skills and knowledge. Acceptance statistics are not high, and the designation when achieved is a high honor strictly for accredited degree and graduate education holders or individuals with superior and equivalent backgrounds who have received government sanctioned, offered, and/or germane training.

A multitude of original content, books, manuals and training materials have been meticulously amassed by the AAPM and IPMC over the years. As an example, the newest updated edition of global training materials for MPM® and CIPM® was compiled via collaboration between experts from: Singapore, Hong Kong, Russia, The EU, Dubai and Hong Kong. As a global organization the AAPM ® Board finds it necessary and urgent to include the best practices from advancing and industrialized countries and experts from around the world. Our AAPM IPMC GRAD/TOP Treatise of Protocols is evidence that our organization is focused on Graduate Professional Practices for todays managers, leaders, and executives.

The AAPM ® has seen a meteoric rise to affluence and membership in recent years, as executives and managers strive to maintain and augment their education, unique credentials, integrity, and skill sets. AAPM affords strategic recognition of over 40 of the top business programs globally including schools that are AACSB International ™ Accredited Schools and The ACBSP ™ accredited business schools. Thus, AAPM accredits and recognizes only the best project management "college level or higher" educational and training programs. AAPM also has an alliance with the RSOF Royal Society of Fellows Worldwide, The 美国项目管理标准认证委员会 Asia Commission, The IPMC International Project Management Commission and the AAFM ™ The American Academy of Financial Management. Further, the AAPM ® has been listed and disclosed as a training and certification provider with the US Department of Education Resource Directory. Further, the AAPM is the first organization in the world to offer a certification training program from an ABA Accredited Law School Recognized degree program.

AAPM’s mission is to serve its global membership and stakeholders as a world leader in educating and reinforcing the international knowledge of executives and potential leadership of institutions.

AAPM ® mandates consent to high standards of professional conduct, and AAPM activities are International in nature and scope.

* Notice on Academic Recognition: Overall, because we have always required a college education or equivalency, we have further positioned the AAPM® , MPM® and CIPM® above the other designations; however, this policy does prevent the multitude from joining the AAPM® .
