l) Educational Licenses, Accreditation, and State Sanction.
The IPMC does not claim to be a college or university nor does it claim accreditation
from any 501 bodies, state, or federal government agency or body. The IPMC is not a 501c3 organization and never
has claimed to be a tax free or charitable entity. The IPMC may engage in business with charitable organizations or
form alliances with charities that operate under 501 but the IPMC operates as a responsible, growing, proprietary,
growth oriented, and profit oriented association and company. The IPMC is an independent authority similar to other
American Associations. The IPMC grants Certifications, certifications, marks, designations, and charters much like
hundreds of other legal educational and recognition institutes or associations in the United States. The IPMC
strictly follows the criteria of the Ibanez decision in the United States. We encourage all members and certified
members to meet all requirements for education, experience, testing, ethics, and continuing education. The IPMC
licenses its marks and logos to others. The marks are generally licensed to individuals. The IPMC will license the
IPMC and other marks and logos to companies, universities, or other uses upon the consent of its board. The IPMC
outsourses to other companies for training and education that is provided online. The IPMC does not collect money
for the courses, provide the service, teach the class, enter into a contract with the student. THe company
providing the education and training is simply using our site as a distribution point. THe IPMC may receive a
referral fee, rebate, revenue share, or other payments for providing the website that afforded the sale of the
service to the customer. In sum, you accept that we are not responsible for the performance of any education or
training contract. We do not hold any of your private information that you submitted to the training, course, or
education provider although directory infomation may be exchanged. This information is limited to email address,
phone number, name, employer, educational degrees and background.
As project management is a relatively new field, it is impossible
for any association to have been in this field for any significant length of time. With this in mind, new and
growing fields of study and practice should be given the opportunity to grow and flourish without government
interference. IPMC claims no government sanction or alliance. IPMC has formed legal relationships with professors,
college organizations, university groups and independent training associations and facilities. As accreditation is
generally not operated by any government body, The IPMC is self governing and our members and certified members are
self governing through our regulations, ethics, and continuing education, and standards much like lawyers,
accountants, or financial planners.
The IPMC is not in the business of accreditation of colleges
universities or schools. Call the AACSB if you desire accreditation or call the Department of
