The Institute of Project Management (“the Institute”) promotes project management education, certification and related member services.

Institute of Project Management
25 Upper Mount Street
Dublin 2
D02 E302

The Institute was founded to help individuals and organisations in both the public and private sectors to develop a knowledge and high-quality capability in Project Management and to provide a focal point and mechanism for the development and promotion of Project Management in Ireland on a professional basis

Our philosophy has always been to ensure that we are up-to-date with the very best thinking and practice in project management worldwide by investing heavily in direct involvement with the international project management community.

Institute's Principal Objectives



Establish and maintain an organisation to advance the theory and practice of Project Management in Ireland.



Establish, maintain and heighten public awareness in general, and business awareness in particular, of Project Management as a critical, clearly defined and recognisable business knowledge and skills set.


Education & Research

Work with educational institutions to provide for the training and career development needs of Project Management and to promote academic and industrial research in Project Management


Standards & Certification

Define standards for entry level qualification for competency in Project Management and to establish and administer a certification process that has Irish and International recognition and acceptance.


International Networks

International collaboration allows countries to share the costs and risks of tackling common project management challenges. A country cannot claim to have a “world class” project management system unless that system is firmly embedded within the global system. Our international linkages with the world’s leading professional associations (IPMA and PMI) ensures we have access to leading-edge project management research, training and certification solutions.
