PMI’s Program Management Professional (PgMP)® credential recognizes the advanced experience and skill of program managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PgMP® demonstrates your proven competency to oversee multiple, related projects and their resources to achieve strategic business goals.
PgMP® credential holders oversee the success of a program, grouping related projects together to realize organizational benefits not available if they were managed separately. It’s the perfect fit if you define projects, assign project managers and oversee programs.
Who should apply?
If you’re a program manager looking to demonstrate a proven ability to manage complex, multiple projects and align results to organizational goals; increase your visibility and value with your organization; and separate yourself in the eyes of employers, the PgMP® credential is for you.
To apply for the PgMP®, you need to have either:
- A four year degree (bachelor’s or the global equivalent), with at least four years of project management experience and four years of program management experience.
- A secondary diploma (high school or the global equivalent), with at least four years of project management experience and seven years of program management experience.
Note: the focus for this class is an intensive workshop for those planning on applying for approval and taking the PgMP exam. If you have not gained enough experience in project and program management to meet these eligibility requirements, consider the Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential.
