The Program Management Professional (PgMP®) Credential

 This credential is for professionals who demonstrate advanced experience, knowledge and performance to achieve an organizational objective through defining and overseeing projects and resources.  A Program Management Professional (PgMP) oversees programs, defines projects and assigns project managers.

Individuals who hold the PgMP credential demonstrate a proficient level of project and program management skills.   To be eligible for a PgMP credential, you must meet specific guidelines that objectively measure experience, education and professional knowledge and undergo a rigorous application process as well as three assessments. 

You also must agree to adhere to the PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and pass a rigorous multiple-choice examination that assesses your abilities in project management.  The CAPM or PMP credential are not prerequisites for the PgMP credential.
