This is not a training course but rather a certification programme based on already proven performance on the job. Achieving certification signals that an individual has reached a standard level of performance and skills related to a specific set of competences. These competences are based on practical experience and application. After achieving certification and being given the title of MPA PRO, individuals agree to adhere to a set of professional standards of conduct or code of ethics. Therefore, this programme will admit only those who already meet a certain level of knowledge, skills, and performance standards within core competence areas.
