Program Management Professional (PgMP℠)
Program managers can now obtain an internationally recognised credential that certifies their knowledge, experience and skills. Since the Project Management Institute (PMI®) launched their Program Management Professional (PgMP℠).
The PgMP® credential recognizes those practitioners who are responsible for the coordinated management of multiple, related projects that advance organizational objectives and strategic goals.
In response to the announcement by the PMI® of the launch of the Program Management Professional (PgMP℠), ProjectPro®, which has trained hundreds of candidates to pass the PMI® credential exams, offers 2-day workshops to prepare candidates for the PgMP® exam and to inform others interested in programme management.
Who should attend? ProjectPro’s workshop is ideal for:
Those interested in joining ProjectPro’s PgMP workshop should register from our website www.projectpro.co.za or contact Terry Deacon on 012 346 6674 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The course fee is R 9 185.00 including VAT, but excludes exam fees payable in US$ directly to PMI®.
Building on the rigorous process it takes to achieve other certifications in PMI’s family of credentials, the PgMP® uses three evaluations:
Completing the three evaluations not only allows program managers to assess their knowledge and skills against global industry standards but also provides them with feedback through the MRA process that they can use for professional development.
“It was a very good opportunity to test myself to find where my skills are located according to program management standards and to see where I need to develop.” said Kwang Gu Baek, PMP, PgMP, program manager for Eaton Korea, an automotive company in Pyungtek-Si, Republic of Korea. Mr. Gu Baek is among the first PgMP℠ credential holders worldwide, who participated in the pilot exam conducted in 2007.
Because the evaluations are progressed in an online environment, panels of program managers from across the world are able to assess the candidate’s professional experience in the first evaluation. Candidates also can select MRA raters from anywhere in the world to participate in the third evaluation.
The Program Management Professional workshop will be a valuable learning experience for senior and advanced practitioners or executives interested in project, program and portfolio management.
