PgMP - Program Managment Certification

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.
