Program Management Professional (PgMP)

PMI’s Program Management Professional (PgMP) credential recognizes the advanced experience and skill of program managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PgMP demonstrates your proven competency to oversee multiple, related projects and their resources to achieve strategic business goals.

PgMP credential holders oversee the success of a program, grouping related projects together to realize organizational benefits not available if they were managed separately. It’s the perfect fit if you define projects, assign project managers and oversee programs.

If you’re a program manager looking to demonstrate a proven ability to manage complex, multiple projects and align results to organizational goals; increase your visibility and value with your organization; and separate yourself in the eyes of employers, the PgMP credential is for you.

To apply for the PgMP, you need to have either:
  • A four year degree (bachelor’s or the 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 the global equivalent), with at least four years of project management experience and seven years of program management experience.
If you have not gained enough experience in project and program management to meet these eligibility requirements, consider the Project Management Professional (PMP) credential.

To apply for the PgMP, register and log in to our online system to get started. A printable PgMP application form is also available.

As part of PMI’s Continuing Certification Requirements program, a PgMP credential holder will need to earn 60 PDUs per three-year cycle. To learn more about the program, what are PDUs, how to earn and claim them, as well as step-by-step instructions on how to renew your certification, watch the CCR video. You can also reference the latest PgMP Handbook found on PMI.org.

When someone is about to lead a project they are more like having the whole responsibility on their head and i believe its very important because agile business intelligence have all those elements which are fine enough to be understand and done.
