AAPCM uses the Australian National Competency Standards for Procurement, developed by Australian Industry Skills Councils, as the basis for its certification process. These are currently available for both the Public Sector and the Business Sector. AAPCM's certification framework provides a robust means to recognise an individual’s qualifications and experience as a procurement and/or contract management professional against these standards. Certification therefore provides significant benefits for the individual and for the employer organisation.

The actual level of certification level available to an individual member depends on qualifications and experience of the individual. The level is assessed by an experienced, approved AAPCM assessor. Remember, certification is only available to members of AAPCM with a membership grade of Qualified Member (and above).
