The Localization Institute is offering a package of online recordings and readings for independent self study. This package contains the same information as the self-study portion of the Localization Project Management Certification program, but it does not include the workshop or the certification exam.


To register for the full certification program, please visit the certification page. You do have the option to apply this self study towards the certification program at a later date; we will apply your fee paid to the certification program fee.

You can register for and start the online self study at any time. Once registered, you will have 12 weeks to complete the self study package.


Prerequisites: attendees should have 3-5 years experience as a localization project manager on either the vendor or buyer side.


Format: the videos can be watched on your laptop or tablet/smart phone. Other course components can only be used on your laptop.


The Localization Institute is an approved provider of project management training (Registered Education Provider) by the Project Management Institute (PMI). You can use the 12.5 hours spent on the localization project management self study course as Professional Development Units (PDU) if you are a certified PMP, or use the hours as credits if you are applying to be a PMP.
