Become a Certified Professional Impact Analyst
One way to improve the effectiveness of international development programs is to equip professionals with the skills of impact analysis: assessment, finance, and evaluation. The Impact Bridges Group has a strong working relationship with the faculty members at Queen’s University in charge of the design and delivery of a training program that focuses on these skills.
The program, referred to as CPIA (Certified Professional Impact Analyst), offers three courses: Social Impact & Project Identification, Results-Based Financing, Collecting Data & Building Evidence. Individuals who complete all three courses and a qualifying exam, are eligible for the designation of Certified Professional Impact Analyst (CPIA).
Three Courses. One Designation.
The three CPIA courses are designed for all professionals involved in designing, financing, implementing, monitoring, or evaluating social interventions, public policies, or international development projects. Each course is one-week, and comprises lectures, in-class discussions, and applied case studies to ensure that participants can apply the concepts they learn to practical projects.
The upcoming course is Results-Based Financing (August 13-17, 2018). For more information on CPIA or to register for the program, please visit www.cpia.queensu.ca
