6 Project Managers from ISPE received an IPMA international accreditation

Written by dragos on . Posted in News

On March 2010, ISPE, represented by Mr. Mihai Dumitrescu, Project Management Dpt. Director, became a member of the Romanian Project Management Association (RPMA).In May, the certification procedures of the project managers were started according to the requirements of RPMA and Romania Project Management – CERT, national member of IPMA (International Project Management Association).

The main goal of these actions is to promote ISPE project management activity according to the international standards in the field and to the project manager’s recognition requirements.
Therefore, we have the pleasure to inform you that the first stage of the international certification was successfully finished at the beginning of July, after the written and oral exam on the project management and project oriented organizations competences.

After graduating the exam, this certification awards with the title „Certified Project Manager”, for B and C categories, the following colleagues: Carmen Gujb?, Florin St?nescu, Virgil Cri?an, ?tefan Andrei, Adrian Popa and Ion Chi?escu.

Having in ISPE a project managers group internationally certified, who have professional competences defined as an occupational standard, essentially contributes to consolidate our company market position, thus bringing a competitive advantage.
