GPM certification levels

Professional GPM certificates confirm your skills, abilities, and knowledge in sustainability and project management.

The GPM Professional Certification Path includes three levels of advancement:

  • The Green Project Manager – Basic (GPM-b ™), Certification of Basic Knowledge
  • The Green Project Manager – Specialist (GPM-s ™), Certification of Skills and Abilities
  • The Green Project Manager – Master (GPM-m ™), Certification of Master Level in Skills and Abilities

The GPM certification program has been developed in accordance with ISO 17024. It is an international standard for bodies certifying individuals. By adhering to it, we express our commitment to running a professional and fair certification program.

We have a certification body whose task is to develop and supervise the organization of professional certificates. The GPM Certification Board is independent of GPM to eliminate potential conflicts of interest between the certification process and GPM following ISO 17024. The GPM Certification Program is available in every country.
