CPMAI Certification FAQ
The CPMAI Training and Certification contains around 27 hours of self-paced online instruction plus an additional 16 sets of exercises with at least 20 questions each that are automatically scored to make sure you absorb and understand key concepts in each set. You have up to six months to complete the certification, but many complete the training and certification process in just a few weeks.
The CPMAI Training and Certification fee is all-inclusive, providing all necessary online, self-paced learning, supporting materials including workbook and downloadable training materials, self-graded exercises, and one year membership to the CPMAI professionals community starting at time of training enrollment. You may retain the downloadable training materials and workbook for your current and future projects as long as they are not publicly shared or posted online. Training videos are not available for download as they are embedded in our online Learning Management System (LMS).
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. No prior knowledge or experience in AI or advanced data is needed. Knowledge of project management and IT is helpful, but not a prerequisite.
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.

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.
