The Canadian Project Management National Competence Baseline (CPMNCB) is the basis for the Canadian implementation of the IPMA 4-Level Certification system. It is a standard that is invaluable to practitioners and stakeholders. The CPMNCB sets out the knowledge and experience expected from the managers of projects, programmes and project portfolios. It contains basic terms, practices, methods and tools for professional project management, as well as specialist knowledge and experience.
As an evolving profession, it is critical that project management practitioners have access to up to date information. The CPMNCB currently uses the latest, third edition of the IPMA Competence Baseline (ICB), published by the International Project Management Association, which includes changes in standards, content, and language, along with updates recommended by practitioners.

Capital Project Cost Control
by Morley Selver
Project cost control is a very important topic — even more important when the project budgets can often stretch into the hundreds of millions (even billions) of dollars and small mistakes can get magnified into huge problems. This DVD is a live recording of a webinar by Morley Selver, known as "The Project Doctor," who has over 30 years of real-world plant project engineering experience.
Selver has donated all author royalties from the sale of this DVD to the PMAC.
