SUKAD signed an affiliation agreement with CUPE Projects, an APM Group Authorised Training Organisation.

The APM Group (APMG) is a leading Accreditation, Certification and Qualification organization recognized internationally by government agencies, and offering certifications such as PRINCE2®, ITIL®, P3M3®, MSP® and others.

CUPE Projects (Ltd) is an Authorised Training Organisation by the APM Group of the UK. CUPE was established to add more value than cost to improve client projects. This is by developing people to deliver better. CUPE offers a range of training and business solutions for project, programme and portfolio management. In early 2012 CUPE was awarded the ISO 9001:2008 certificate for its quality systems. The ISO 9001:2008 certification covers both Training and Consulting. CUPE strive to ensure quality throughout the company and this is regularly reflected in client feedback.

SUKAD signed an ATO affiliate agreement with CUPE to offer PRINCE2® certification courses and to administer Foundation and Practitioner exams to its client base of Project Management professionals. Mr. Luc Bauwmans, SUKAD Vice President, is already certified by the APM Group as a PRINCE2® certified trainer.  This agreement enables SUKAD to add a globally respected and acclaimed certification programs to its current offerings. Additionally, rather than outsourcing, SUKAD consultants can now deliver the programs themselves in the region. This is considered a great leap forward for SUKAD in fulfilling its promise to providing pioneering solutions with exceptional quality.

Mr. Mounir Ajam, SUKAD Co-Founder and CEO, explained why such an affiliation: “In our region, most providers focus only on PMP® (Project Management Professional) training or only PMI certifications and SUKAD is a leader in this domain. However, SUKAD is also proud to be a pioneer and with our customer-centric focus, it is necessary to offer our clients and community a choice in project management learning and certification.
