PMI is committed to the safety and well-being of our global community. Resulting from COVID-19, there have been significant changes to certification testing that may impact you. Please refer to our COVID-19 page for the most up to date information and guidance.
To earn your Program Management Professional (PgMP)® credential, you need to meet the experience and education requirements, and pass the panel review and the multiple-choice examination.
Regardless of how advanced your program management experience or education might be, you should still prepare vigorously for the exam. Successful PgMP candidates typically use multiple study aids — including courses, self-study and study groups — and will spend many hours to prepare. Make sure you leave yourself plenty of preparation time before you take the multiple-choice exam.
