The COV ITRM Project Manager Selection and Training Standards for project managers require the candidate to successfully pass two qualification exams – Level One and Two.
The Commonwealth Project Manager Qualification Level One Exam is required for all project managers who manage Commonwealth IT projects from Category 1 – 4. The quizzes are based on the Commonwealth methodology outlined in the COV ITRM Project Management Standard CPM 112-03.2 and COV ITRM Project Manager Selection and Training Standard CPM 111-02. The candidate must successfully complete Level One before taking the Level Two Exam.
The exams are provided over the Internet using a secure Learning Management System (LMS). Once you are registered, a separate email will be sent to you in 1-3 business days with the link, your username and password. You have 60 days from the receipt of the email to complete your exam. The quizzes are open book. Each exam is broken down into sections called quizzes. Each quiz has 16 multiple choice questions pulled randomly from a question pool. Project manager candidates must achieve a passing score for each quiz of 75% and an overall passing score to meet the qualification standard.
VITA is working in concert with the Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA) to conduct the Project Management Exams. Please contact CCWA (804)523.2292 for questions. You may register online for a retest. DO NOT register for EXAM 2 until you have successfully completed Exam 1.
