The purpose and goal of this is the development, maintenance, evaluation, promotion, and administration of a rigorous education, experience and examination-based, professional certification credential of the highest calibre. It is called the Program Management Professional (PgMP®).

The PgMP® Credential Program supports the international community of Program Management Professionals and is designed to objectively assess and measure professional knowledge.

Preparing for PgMP® gives you the foundation, knowledge, techniques and tools to be fully prepared for the PgMP® exam. This is a course that is based on the PMI® Program Management Body of Knowledge with hand-on exercises of program management best practice and typical exam styled questions.
