IAC1001 discusses four fundamentally different "Areas of Project Management Application" (APMA), i.e. different types of project each requiring different approaches to their management.

IAC1002 describes the structure of the "Issacon Knowledge" in terms of level in a knowledge hierarchy.

1100 (Risk) | 1125 (Scope) | 1150 (PM Models) | 1175 (Quality)
1200 (PM Forms) | 1275 (Job Descriptions) | 1300 (Time) | 1325 (Cost) | 1350 (People)
1400 (Contract/Procurement) | 1430 (Info/Coms)
