The MoP Qualification Scheme has been developed by AXELOS Ltd to offer a tiered examination structure with two levels of qualification, Foundation and Practitioner.

AXELOS sets the quality expectations for the MoP qualifications and has accredit nine Examination Institutes (EIs) who are able accredit the network of Accredited Training Organizations including their trainers and course material to be able to offer MoP training courses and examinations.

There are two MoP qualifications, the Foundation and the Practitioner, available in English:


The purpose of the Foundation certification is to confirm you have sufficient knowledge and understanding to work as an informed member of a Portfolio Office or in a range of portfolio management roles. The Foundation level is also a pre-requisite for the Practitioner certification

  • Multiple choice
  • 50 questions per paper
  • 25 marks required to pass (out of 50 available) - 50%
  • 40 minutes duration
  • Closed book.


The purpose of the Practitioner certification is to confirm you have achieved sufficient understanding of how to apply and tailor the MoP guidance and to analyse portfolio data, documentation and roles in relation to a scenario situation. You should, with suitable support, be able to advise on the implementation of appropriate practices and techniques, and apply the method to a live portfolio, but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations. Your individual expertise, the complexity of the portfolio, and the support provided will also influence the impact the Practitioner can achieve

  • Objective testing format
  • 4 questions per paper with 20 marks available per question - all question items will be worth 1 mark, making the total number of marks available per paper 80
  • 3 hours duration
  • 40 marks required (out of 80 available) to pass - 50%
  • Open book exam (MoP guide only).


There are two routes towards obtaining the MoP qualifications - you can sit the exams at the end of a training course, or study privately and then book the exam without a training course at one of the Open Centres.


Candidates must pass the Foundation Exam before the Practitioner Exam, either on the same day or separately. If a candidate has previously passed the Foundation Exam, they qualify to sit the Practitioner Exam without needing to re-sit the Foundation.

If a candidate sits the Foundation Exam only, and passes, they will receive a "Foundation Examination" certificate stating that they have passed. However, if a candidate sits both the Foundation and Practitioner Exam on the same day, and passes both, they will receive a "Practitioner Examination" certificate, but not a "Foundation Examination" one.
