The AAPM ®  is the first certification body in the world to earn ISO 21001 Certification for Educational Bodies and the first PM body to have a direct legal articulation on standards with the ACBSP American Business School Accreditation Agency, The CHEA Council on Higher Education Quality Group, and the Arab League's Arab Academy.

The AAPM ®  was founded in 1996, via a consolidation between the CEC/PME Project Manager E-Business Committee (PME) and the Founders Advisory Committee of the Original Chartered Condor Falcon Graduate Institute of Leadership Development ™. Although our vision, origins and founding philosophy go back to the government management standards and protocols in the  USA from 1940s, the AAPM ® and IPMC is newer in its present formation due to the changes in leadership and  governmental management standards. The AAPM was originally established in as a professional organization for graduate students, IT Managers, Government Employees, Military Officers, and Analysts. The Condor Falcon Management Institute was founded to examine strategic leadership and planning issues for graduates professionals and leaders and to award the leadership, project management and consulting awards and designations. The AAPM ®  Graduate Board currently recognizes over 12,000 Executive Project Managers, PhDs, Masters Degree Holders, government officials, and consultants as executive members in over 141 nations. As there had not been a graduate professional project manager organization specifically for Executives, MBAs, PhDs and accredited degree holders, The AAPM ™ has met this need and become the organization of choice for highly educated individuals or industry experts because AAPM requires an accredited college degree or graduate equivalent for membership and certification. The AAPM receives its license, sanction and authority from the Charter and Bylaws of The IPMC International Project Management Commission.

Furthermore, AAPM ®  has several Primary global certifications available for its membership which are the: MPM ™ Master Project Manager, CIPM ™ Certified International Project Manager, PME ™ Project Manager E-Business, CPRM ™ Certified Project Risk Manager, MQM ™ Master of Quality Management or Master Quality Manager, CPE ™ Certified Planning Engineer, and CEC ™ Certified E-Commerce Consultant.

Further, the AAPM board certification requires meeting 6 different levels of global criteria including ethics and our global body of standards which are the 1st Standards specifically based on the methodology used by global government agencies and departments. Acceptance into the AAPM is a high distinction and requires the holder to possess a graduate level portfolio of skills and knowledge. Acceptance statistics are not high, and the designation when achieved is a high honor strictly for accredited degree and graduate education holders or individuals with superior and equivalent backgrounds who have received government sanctioned, offered, and/or germane training.

A multitude of original content, books, manuals and training materials have been meticulously amassed by the AAPM and IPMC over the years. As an example, the newest updated edition of global training materials for MPM®  and CIPM®  was compiled via collaboration between experts from: Singapore, Hong Kong, Russia, The EU, Dubai and Hong Kong. As a global organization the AAPM ®  Board finds it necessary and urgent to include the best practices from advancing and industrialized countries and experts from around the world. Our AAPM IPMC GRAD/TOP Treatise of Protocols is evidence that our organization is focused on Graduate Professional Practices for todays managers, leaders, and executives.
