Announces PgMP® Credential to the Public from 1st October, 2007
This is the extract of communiqué received from PMI® announcing the
official launch of PgMP® for the public candidates.
PMI® is proud to announce that the Program Management
Professional (PgMP®) Credential will be made available to the public as of 1
October 2007! With project management’s growing implementation around the
world and across industries, PMI® continues its leadership in
credentialing by launching PgMP® for the community of program managers.
Two years in the making, the credential is now fully tested and has met
PMI’s strenuous acceptance criteria to take its rightful place in PMI’s
family of credentials. The PgMP® will become a market-recognized professional
credential from the world’s largest project management organization through
which candidates can demonstrate their experience, knowledge and performance
as a program manager.
PMI’s first-ever invitation-only pilot was a huge success. Candidates
from 16 countries participated in the PgMP® pilot, which completed in early
August. They had this to share:
To maintain an active certification status, credential holders will be
asked to show their commitment to project and program management as well as
to their organization by expanding their professional knowledge through a
Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program identical to the PMP® CCR
program. Classes for those with this new credential in which a credential
holder can earn PDUs may also be offered by many of the same R.E.P.s who
offer examination preparation.
PMI® is excited about the possibilities of credentialed
project team members, project managers and program managers working together
using knowledge and techniques from the Project Management Body of Knowledge
to achieve organizational success. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with
questions or inquiries.
