The Program Management Professional (PgMP)® credential from Project Management Institute (PMI)® is the next step after Project Management Professional (PMP)® Certification, and addresses the community of professionals who are responsible for the coordinated management of multiple projects that are in alignment with organizational objectives. They are required to direct and manage complex activities that may span functions, organizations, cultures and geographies.
Our comprehensive workshop covers the Project Management process from beginning to end, honing your skills in the six prime focus areas: Governance, Prioritization, Escalation, Resource Management, Benefits Realization, and Stakeholder Management.
As a PgMP® credential holder, you will be able to promote better integration and coordination of multiple projects for the overall benefit of the program.
Team Leads, Sponsors, Project Directors, Program Managers, Portfolio Managers, or Project Management Office (PMO) Heads wishing to know more about the processes/benefits of the Program Management approach in supporting organizational strategy can attend this course.
To apply for the Program Management Professional (PgMP)®, candidates need to have either:
Note: If the above requirements are not met, candidates can also consider the Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential.
There are two evaluations for the Program Management Professional (PgMP) ® credential.
The first evaluation is a Panel Review, and the panel review process begins once the certification payment is received and the audit is completed (if your application is selected). A panel of volunteer PgMP® -certified program managers will assess your professional experience based on your responses to the Program Management Experience Summaries on the PgMP® application. Once you pass the panel review, you will be eligible to take the examination.
The PgMP® examination consists of 170 multiple-choice questions. Of the 170 questions, 20 are considered pretest questions which are not scored. The allotted time to complete the computer-based examination is four hours.
There are no prerequisites if one wishes to attend the workshop but in order to appear for the Program Management Professional (PgMP)® certification, candidates must have a Four-year Degree (Bachelor's or Global equivalent), with at least four years of Project Management experience and four years of Program Management experience or a Secondary Diploma (High school or Global equivalent), with at least four years of Project Management experience and seven years of Program Management experience.
You will get 21 PDUs.
PDUs are credits awarded by the Project Management Institute. They recognize your dedication to the Project Management world through the award of credits for every educational effort you make throughout your career. Every PMI® certification, except the CAPM®, requires you to earn a specific number of PDUs per three-year certification cycle.
To manage and assume leadership positions, overseeing multiple projects that span geographies and technologies, organizations need dedicated individuals who have the qualification along with the experience to see these through. PgMP® certified professionals bring in the commitment and expertise needed to pull off these high pressure roles and hence it is a widely recognized credential world over.
Also, PgMP® is far more rigorous than PMP® and hence there are fewer PgMP® qualified professionals out there.
Given the exposure that this credential can bring in, pursuing it is a sure shot way to take a giant leap in one’s career.
The certifications are provided by the Project Management Institute, PMI®.
The PMI® suite of credentials reflects a professional’s passion for continuous excellence. The PgMP® is especially useful for professionals who are ready to assume leadership roles in companies.
So once you are PgMP® certified, you can be sure to rise up the ranks of the corporate ladder.
While the PMP® teaches you about Project Management, the PgMP® is all about Program Management and you will know how to start and close programs of any scale.
Once you get this certification, there would be no looking back for you!
