IPM hits record student registration for PCGD Programme just after two weeks of 2014 O/Level Examinations.

Second Batch commences in February, following repeated requests by parents and students.

Students prove once again that their first and the best choice after O/levels is IPM Sri Lanka.


IPM - the Institute of Personnel Management Sri Lanka Inc. – the first ISO 9001:2008 Certified Human Resource Management Institute and the most respected educational institution in the country (LMD, 2014), registered a record number of new students just after two weeks of 2014 Ordinary Level Examinations, for its Programme in Career Guidance and Development (PCGD), a programme, which is specially designed for students after G.C.E. Ordinary Level Examinations, with record breaking number of students embarking on their journey to become fully qualified Human Resource Professionals.

The demand for this programme is consistent across the country, which saw increasing numbers of school leavers choosing to study IPM programmes. IPM is opening its students’ registrations yet again in the month of January to accommodate a large number of inquiries and request made by parents and students.

Any student, who sat for G.C.E (Ordinary Level) Examination with pending results, can register for this much sought after course - the Programme in Career Guidance and Development (PCGD).

IPM has established strong relationships with some of the most reputed universities, both local and international such as Open University of Sri Lanka, Northumbria University of UK etc. and shows a clear path for its students to obtain a Professional Qualification in HRM together with MBA in HRM.
