No prior knowledge or experience in AI or advanced data is needed. Knowledge of project management and IT is helpful, but not a prerequisite. The CPMAI Certification is primarily for those in project or product management, IT, business management, and executive roles that are currently or will be involved in advanced data and AI projects. CPMAI has certified many people in roles such as project management, compliance, legal, risk, procurement, business strategy, analytics, product management, engineering, and many non-IT roles and titles.

The CPMAI Training and Certification doesn’t require any prior knowledge or experience on AI or advanced data. The CPMAI training and certification course starts with a foundation of AI, foundation of data science, and each subsequent module explains the concepts at the level of detail needed to understand how to manage AI projects from the project manager’s perspective, rather than from the low-level implementation perspective.

Once you are CPMAI certified, your certification is valid for three years during and after which it may be maintained by keeping active your CPMAI Community membership and by upgrading to the latest version of CPMAI Certification and/or completing at least forty (40) Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

CPMAI Certification is easy to keep up to date and relevant for your current and future projects. The first step to maintaining your CPMAI Certification is by staying a member of the CPMAI Community. In addition to your active CPMAI Community Membership, during the three-year period while your CPMAI Certification is valid, earn at least forty (40) Continuing Education Units (CEUs) by participating in CPMAI community webinars, additional free learning opportunities that continue to enhance and add value to the CPMAI core curricula and body of knowledge, contributing to CPMAI community content, engaging with the CPMAI community, listening to CPMAI podcasts, and  other opportunities as Cognilytica releases them. You can also maintain your CPMAI Certification by upgrading to the latest version of the CPMAI Certification at any time before or after your current CPMAI certification expires.

Yes! Currently we offer promotional-focused CPMAI Partner Programs that promote consulting firms, vendors, professional organizations, systems integrators (SIs), and other firms that provide solutions to end users leveraging CPMAI methodology. We offer three levels of partnership and benefits depending on the number of CPMAI individuals certified at the organization. Inquire for availability and details. Cognilytica is exploring CPMAI Certified Training partnership programs for those interested in delivering CPMAI Training to support CPMAI Certification. We will announce further details on Training partnership programs in the future. Inquire if you are interested in participating.

The CPMAI Certification is focused on providing project management methodology for running AI, machine learning, and advanced data projects. Other certifications are either focused on vendor- or technology-specific low-level development or data science needs or are more generally focused on project management skills independent of their application. Certainly, there’s nothing wrong with having a vendor-specific certification for a cloud platform or development tool, and nothing wrong with having a certification to learn data science skills. As well, there’s nothing wrong with having a certification focused on project management skills such as a PMP or Agile certification. In fact, if you have any of these certifications, you’ll find even more value in the CPMAI Certification. Many of our CPMAI Certified community have certifications including PMP, LSS, SAFe, ITIL certifications and a wide range of technical and project-specific certifications from vendors such as AWS, Microsoft, IBM, and others.

 

CPMAI Certification fills in the gaps of these technology-specific or project management-general certifications. CPMAI provides the specific best practices methodologies you need to run AI and advanced data projects with confidence in their success, and the certification earned is a signal to employers, recruiters, clients, and colleagues that you have the specific skills needed to run AI and data projects with success. There are no credible alternatives to the vendor-neutral, best practices-based, CRISP-DM and Agile foundation of the CPMAI certification for AI and data project management methodology.

Follow these steps to get on your way to your CPMAI Certification. The first step to certification is completing an authorized CPMAI Training on the latest version of the CPMAI Certification curricula. Currently, only Cognilytica offers authorized Certified training. Training is offered as online, self-paced instruction but virtual live instructor as well as in-person, on-site instruction is available with schedule availability and enrollment minimums. During each training, each trainee will be required to complete exercises that ascertain understanding of the material, and the completion of the workbook which ascertains ability to apply the material to current or conceptual projects. After the completion of all exercises and training materials, a CPMAI Certification is automatically granted. For those using the online, self-paced Learning Management System (LMS), the certificate is provided automatically in electronic form. For in-person training and certification, certificates are provided in print and electronic form.

After you have successfully achieved your CPMAI Certification, there are a a number of ways you can share your certification with the world:

  • Step 1: Get Noticed! Add the CPMAI Certification to your Licenses & Certifications on your LinkedIn profile.  Instructions on how to add/link your certificate to your profile can be found at: https://courses.cognilytica.com/2021/10/08/add-your-cpmai-certificate-to-your-linkedin-profile/.  Email us at info@cognilytica.com if you'd like a PDF and PNG version of your certificate, if you haven't already downloaded it from the CPMAI course site upon receipt of your certificate.
  • Step 2: Get Recognition! Make a LinkedIn post sharing your certification. LinkedIn doesn’t automatically share notifications of certifications and licenses, but you deserve the attention and the kudos! Create a LinkedIn post and say "Thrilled to be #CPMAI #certified by @Cognilytica" with the PNG certificate as the image of the post. If you also tag @Cognilytica, we will give you additional value by liking , commenting, and sharing your post.
  • Step 3: Get More Value! Refer to yourself in  your email signatures and online profiles.  All CPMAI certified individuals can add to their online profiles and signatures the following lines:
    • CPMAI AI & ML Project Management Certified
    • OPTIONAL: Add the CPMAI suffix to your name on LinkedIn profile just as others do for PMP and other certifications (for example “Jane Doe, CPMAI”)

We also offer digital badges that you can share on  social media platforms, as part of your email signature, on resumes, and in other professional places where you would like to showcase your certifications and credentials. You should have received an automatic link to your electronic badge upon the grant of your CPMAI Certification. If you didn’t receive the link to your badge or need us to resend your badge to you, please email us at info@cognilytica.com.

You might be able to get your current employer to cover your CPMAI certification and training costs as part of their tuition reimbursement or continuing education benefits. Many organizations offer several thousand dollars a year in employee skilling and training benefits, and you can take advantage of that for your CPMAI certification and training fee. Find out if your current employer will reimburse or pay directly for professional certifications, such as they would for the PMI PMP certification, for example.

Currently, we don’t have any specific discounts for full-time students or government employees. However, the CPMAI certification and training cost is under the US Government “Minimum Purchase Threshold (MPT)” and qualifies for training under SF-182 for individuals and groups, and as such would be reimbursable or directly payable by the government for current, full-time government employees. For current students, we offer group discounts for five or more people who enroll and pay for CPMAI training and certification at the same time. Find a group of people and we’ll give you a 10% discount for five or more enrolled at the same time, and a 20% discount for 10 or more enrolled at the same time.

There are no refunds granted for membership fees or CPMAI training and certification fees. If you enroll for CPMAI but are unable to use the training or certification before you have started the course, please let us know and we can make arrangements to transfer it to someone else or alternate arrangements.

Cognilytica is a professional certification / credential granting organization, and not an accredited academic institution, in much the same way that the Project Management Institute (PMI) is a certification organization and has no academic accreditation. The training that is bundled with the CPMAI Certification gives you the training to get the certification,and can earn CEUs and PDUs that would be honored by PMI and other project management certification organizations.

The CPMAI certification is a sign to current and potential employers that you have the right project management skills needed to successfully run and manage AI, ML, and advanced analytics projects. Getting certified augments, enhances, and extends any experience you might have in project management or AI. Or, if you lack that experience, it shows employers that you have gone through best practices methodology that will be instantly applicable to current or future AI projects

  • Absolutely! Employers are looking for individuals to run AI projects that have the project management and AI skills necessary to make an impact on day one of their efforts. CPMAI certification has directly helped individuals participate in major AI initiatives and get employed at organizations including Shell, AstraZeneca, Coca-Cola, consulting and contracting firms such as Deloitte, Maximus, and government agencies and organizations across the world.

CPMAI certification opens the door of opportunity for you as a certified project manager for the duration of your certification with additional CPMAI learning opportunities included with your membership, opportunities to interact with the CPMAI community, and job postings from employers looking for CPMAI certified individuals as we announce them.
