Frequently asked questions

How can I obtain the PTMA certification?
PTMCO operates with a unique model in which the candidate’s professional expertise in technical management is assessed by a committee. Candidates are asked to complete a challenging questionnaire that demonstrates expertise on the basis of concrete practical examples. A possible reference can also be consulted. The committee consists of seasoned experts from the field.
Is there a possibility for a refund if I am not admitted?
Because we work with an alternative model compared to other certification organizations, a refund is available in the event of a negative assessment by the committee. In that case, the complete admission fee will be refunded within seven days.
How long are the PTMCO certifications valid?

The PTMCO certifications are a confirmation of professional experience and skills and are therefore valid for life. We do, however, encourage certificate holders to keep their expertise in the field of technical management up to date and to continue to explore new areas of knowledge.

Can I share PTMCO's certifications on my LinkedIn page?
PTMCO’s certifications can be shared on all social platforms. Certificates receive both a certificate in PDF format and a public web page to verify certification.
