Client Testimonials

Sarah Clements

General Manager


“I phoned MetaPM and from that very first interaction with the front desk, and then being put through to the key areas of responsibility, it was an incredibly positive experience. I would highly recommend MetaPM to anyone in a similar situation, who is going from ground zero to wanting to launch the rocket in project management - because our experience was nothing but first class.”

Shane Riley

Director of Business Operations & Delivery

“I would highly recommend MetaPM to anyone who asks and will continue to use them myself. I find that the organisation has strong professionals who are lovely people to work with. They go above and beyond what I have contracted them to do to help me make my delivery a success. I can’t speak highly enough of them.”

Alex Simon

Capital Expenditure Manager


“I have been working on and off with MetaPM for just over 10 years. They seem to have more subject matter of expertise around portfolio, programme, and project management (and) they seem to be more flexible than the bigger consultants that you work with You won’t get another consultant who has that capacity in-house, so I highly recommend them to any company.”

My organisation needs to purchase training opportunities in bulk – is this possible?

Corporate Training Credits can be arranged with organisations that have varied and ongoing training needs. 

A pre-paid training budget can be drawn from accessible and flexible training options suitable for larger volumes of staff across multiple departments who can’t all get away from work at the same time.

Can I retake my exam if I fail?

Foundation Exams - MetaPM places great emphasis on quality trainers and teaching, directly resulting in 95% of delegates successfully completing the Foundation exam on their first attempt.

In the unlikely event you fail the Foundation exam MetaPM will provide the student with the opportunity to retake the training and exam free of charge.

Additional charges of $600 will apply for any further attempts.

Please note students are required to attend a minimum of 80% of the Foundation course and to complete all of the homework and tasks as required in order to be eligible for a free-of-charge second attempt.

Practitioner Exams - We don’t deny that the Practitioner exam is the harder of the two, and again our high standards for trainers and teaching mean that you will be in the best position possible to successfully pass the Practitioner exam. Additional charges will apply to re-sit this one, though we will happily arrange further coaching for you at no charge.

Students are required to attend the entire Practitioner course and to complete all homework and tasks in order to be in the best position to take the Practitioner exam.
