At the APM Group, we pride ourselves on our capacity to make professional certification accessible across the globe. Exams have been taken in over 150 countries in 21 languages through our offices and representatives in 13 countries. We adjust our cost structures to reflect local economies so certification is equally affordable across all countries. We will subsidize accreditation and examination fees to support early adopters and help them to grow market demand.
Working seamlessly with our international offices and colleagues and with respect for different cultures, we continue to expand our portfolio to adapt to the needs of each region. Our PMD Pro certification, designed to for project managers working in the development sector, has already been taken by several thousand delegates.
We have an agreement with the Global Alliance for Project Performance Standards (GAPPS), which is an alliance of government, private industry, professional associations and training/academic institutes working together to develop globally applicable project management competency-based standards and frameworks. This partnership enables any provider recognized according to our quality assurance system to register with GAPPS without the need to meet any additional requirements.
