Training and certification

Professional training that supplements competencies and prepares for the certification system based on the PRiSM™ methodology and the P5 Standard.


GPM Global has created a training and a three-level certification system to educate professional staff ready to achieve better results sustainably. During the training, participants gain the knowledge and competencies necessary to implement even the most complex projects. Graduates become Change Leaders, for whom success is synonymous with the good of all people building up the company, the entire community, and the natural environment.


Accredited Training Organizations GPM EMEA offers two types of training:
  • PRiSM™ Foundations Workshops – this training program is aimed at people who have previously obtained a diploma or certificate in the field of project management and who want to learn about the concept of Green Project Management and its tools. Participants will learn the techniques and methods of project management and about sustainable development principles based on the PRiSM™ methodology and Standard P5. During the workshops, the following topics are discussed: system thinking, organizational ability to change, benefits of business justification and value management, organizational structures and roles, risk management, and stakeholder engagement.
  • PRiSM™ Practitioner Workshops – the training aims to use traditional methods, such as those described in ISO 21500. The program is designed to deepen the understanding and improve participants’ competencies in project management, taking into account social and environmental needs. The training scope has been extended, among others, of issues related to information management and reporting, leadership, conflicts, and negotiations. The course prepares participants to pass the GPM-b™ certification exam.
