Our values


Trust is precious and fundamental to our relationships, business decisions and conduct. It's also a value we make sure to share with our alumni via our Code of Ethics for Project Professionals.


Bringing projects to life involves problem solving, imagination and flexibility. You'll seldom find the best solution thinking inside the box.


We believe education and opportunity should be freely accessible to everyone, regardless of geography, wealth, or background. That's why our online course is free.


It's ethical and leads to better outcomes. We do our best to see that reflected in our team, our teaching style and our alumni.

Scott Kinder, CPD

Chief Executive Officer
