5 The Journey to the PMI-PMP designation


The Concordia Institute for Aerospace Design and Innovation (CIADI), is a coordinated umbrella platform that promotes and supports excellence in aerospace research and education at Concordia. CIADI was the first aerospace institute established in Quebec in May 2001. It supports education and experiential learning initiatives catered to the aerospace sector and upholds the development and management of multi-partner aerospace research projects. CIADI is committed to providing training and opportunities that go above and beyond academic requirements. We collaborate with industry partners, organizations, and faculty members to offer a broad spectrum of targeted training and experiential learning activities covering a wide range of technical and non-technical topics that are relevant to the aerospace industry today.
