PEOPLECERT Group, the experts in certifying professionals, has become a full member of the Spanish Association of Project Management Professionals (www.aepdp.es).
Dedicated to advancing the interests of its members, which includes leading Spanish and global organizations, the aim of the association is to raise awareness and standards in the PM profession and promote project management through industry research, the coordination of conferences and seminars, publications and training services.
As part of the membership, the two organizations will work on joined initiatives that aim to educate professionals of the benefits of key certification schemes.
The first such initiative is the First Iberias American Congress in Services and Project Best Practices that will take place in Spain (Sevilla) on the 6th of October 2011. During the event, industry leaders will get together to learn how they can leverage ITIL best practices and innovations to bring business value to their organization. The conference will also cover other key certifications, including certifications for Management Systems professionals and IASSC Lean Six Sigma and how these can be leveraged by professionals in order to differentiate themselves, demonstrate their commitment to global standards, increase their marketability and promote best practice in their field.
