The Exam

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

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®.
