CCT certification

for english speakers

The CCT certification is aimed at people who work either as a consultant in project management, coach in project management or as a teacher in project management and who do not have sufficient practical experience as a project manager, to be certified within the well-known IPMA certification at level D, C, B and A.

CCT – IPMA Certified Consultant Coach or Trainer

The certification is offered at three levels A, B and C, where A is the highest level. You do not have to start at Level C, but simply choose the certification level that corresponds to your experience and your competence level.

The certification is an obvious opportunity for you who work professionally with the development of project management and project managers, but lack sufficient practical experience within project management to be certified or re-certified within the well-known three IPMA levels A, B C or D.

The entire certification process will be conducted in English language.

CCT certification process

  1. Introduction

First, you participate in a 4-hour online introduction, where we:

  • Review the template for you to be filled during the certification process
  • Introduces you to ICBCCT (the description of the competencies assessed at the certification)
  • Explains how to complete the self-assessment
  • Review the templates you will need for your case studies
  • Goes through the certification process

After the introduction, you have approx. one month to complete and submit your resume and self-assessment.

 

  1. First assessment and first feedback

The assessors assess your CV and your self-assessment and then gives you feedback in the form of an email.

There are two possible outcomes of your initial assessment:

  • The assessors approve that you can continue the certification process. The assessors may choose to give you some hints and tips for your further work with your case studies
  • The assessors cannot approve that you can continue the certification process and will explain to you the reasons for this.

 

  1. Written exam

If you apply for a CCT-Certification at Level B or C and do not have a valid IPMA Certificate in Project Management, Program Management, Portfolio Management or Agile Leadership, you shall pass a written exam at IPMA Level-D as part of your CCT certification.

Once you have passed your written exam at D level, you will be awarded an IPMA certificate at level D and you can continue with your CCT certification.

(Read more about the written exam here:) (text is inserted later in the document).

If you apply to be certified at level A, there is no requirement that you must pass a written exam as part of your CCT certification. If you need to be certified at levels B and C and already have a valid IPMA certificate in project management, program management, portfolio management or Agile Leadership, you also do not have to pass a written exam as part of your CCT certification.

  1. Case studies

At Level A and B you must write at least 2 case studies and at Level C you must only write at least one case study.

Each case study has a maximum volume of 25 pages. For each case study, you have the option of attaching up to 15 pages of appendices.

The purpose of these case studies is to give you the opportunity to document your competencies in relation to the competency elements of ICBCTT.

  1. Interview

The final step in the certification process is the interview with you and the two assessors who have processed all your material. The interview can take place either online or as a physical meeting. At the meeting, the two assessors will ask clarifying questions for your CV, your self-assessment and for your Case Studies.

The interview has a maximum duration of 2 hours.

Immediately after the interview, you will receive the final decision on your Certification level, and the assessors will give you feedback on your competencies.

Description of the competences

All applicants for the CCT-certification are assessed against the competencies described in ICBCTT, which can be downloaded here.

Written exam

Unless you already have a valid IPMA certificate, you must pass a written exam at the IPMA-D level as part of your CCT certification.

Everyone who registers for the written exam will be sent the book “ICB4 for project Management in PDF-format”. The book describes the 28 competencies tested by an IPMA-D certification.

The exam is conducted online and has a duration of 3 hours. If you are dyslexic – or have problems reading/writing in English language – please make us aware of this no later than 3 weeks before the written exam. You will then be allocated an extra 0,5 hour for the written exam.

Before the exam starts, you must present photo identification.

No aids are allowed for the exam. You can choose to complete the written exam at home from, or from a meeting room in your organisation, where you can sit undisturbed throughout the exam.

You must have your WEB camera on during the entire exam and your microphone must be turned off. During the exam, you are supervised by one or more supervisors.

There will be several multiple-choice questions and open-ended questions, all of which relate to all 28 competencies described in ICB4.

To pass, you must have answered correctly to questions for at least 23 competency elements.

The written exam must be passed for you to proceed with your CCT certification. If you do not pass the exam, you can try again in the same certification course. On our website you can find the price for participating in a new exam
