About  IPMA 4-L-C System

There are 4 levels in the IPMA 4-L-C System – Levels A, B, C and D. The IPMA level definitions are
constructed against the following core criteria:
Level A is constructed in terms of the leadership of others in very complex projects throughout the
life cycle at a strategic level. This also applies to portfolio and programme management roles and
life cycles (where applicable).
Level B is constructed in terms of the leadership of others in complex projects throughout the life
cycle. This also applies to portfolio and programme management roles and life cycles (where
applicable).
Level C is constructed in terms of the management of others in projects of moderate complexity
throughout the life cycle through the application of knowledge/theory across all relevant
competences.
Level D is constructed in terms of knowledge across all relevant competences only.
  There are 3 domains in the IPMA 4-L-C System – project, programme and portfolio. In the 3
domains, projects have 4 levels (A, B, C and D); programme and portfolio each have 2 levels (A and B).This creates 8 profiles in the IPMA 4-L-C System
