IMPORTANT UPDATE

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.

At this time we are experiencing a surge in applications for Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP)®. We ask for your patience as the panel review process may currently take up to 60 days to complete. Our service always continues to remain our top priority, and we continue to look forward to supporting you now and into the future.

Caution Icon

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.
