The latest webinar in our series of educational offerings is now available for registration.

The Pyramid of Giza, the Colosseum, and the Transcontinental Railroad are all great historical projects from the past four millennia. When we look back we tend to look at these as great architectural or engineering works. Project management tends to be overlooked, and yet the core principles were used extensively in these projects.

This webinar takes a hard look at the history of project management, how it evolved, and presents some quite remarkable results. Namely, that project management did not just appear in the last 100 years but has been in steady evolution over at least the past 4,500 years.

New insights emerge when dissecting historical projects through a project management lens, and Mark Kozak-Holland brings this to life in his analysis. You will walk away with new insights and an interest to look at these projects more closely for lessons that are just as applicable today as when the projects were initiated.

Mark Kozak-Holland, principal author of the best-selling "Lessons from History" series of books has a new textbook coming out on the history of project management. In this webinar, he is offering our members an exclusive sneak preview in advance of the book's publication.

There is a $9.95 fee for registering for this event. It is open to both PMAC members and non-members alike, and 100% of all registration fees go to the association.

The webinar is on April 22nd, 2010 from Noon to 1:30pm Eastern time.

(PMAC-AMPC.CA) December 9, 2009 - The Certification Body of the Project Management Association of Canada is pleased to announce that for the very first time in history, a Canadian has received an IPMA certification in Canada. While many Canadians have received IPMA certifications over the years, they have done so through applying through foreign project management associations (such as the Association for Project Management in the UK and the American Society for the Advancement of Project Management in the USA) or have applied directly to IPMA, since up until recently Canada did not have its own IPMA member association.

9 December 2009

We are pleased to announce that we are now maintaining a public directory of PMAC members who hold IPMA competence-based certifications at one of the four levels (Level A through Level D).

Currently on the list are our five First Assessors, certified directly by IPMA, who will be following the IPMA certification rules and procedures to begin IPMA certifications within Canada. These First Assessors are qualified to perform assessments at all four levels of certification.

Also on the list is our first member to pass our IPMA Level D exam. Congratulations to Arek Bielawski for the unique honour of being the first person to obtain an IPMA certification IN CANADA!
