    About PMIs Certification ProgramPMI offers a comprehensive certification program for practitioners with different levels of education andexperience. The certifications are developed and maintained through a vigorous process.

    The certification program includes:

    Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)certification

    PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP) credential PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP) credential Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP)SMcredential Program Management Professional (PgMP) credential Project Management Professional (PMP) credential

    PMIs certification and credentials are distinguished by their global development and application, whichmakes them transferable across industries and geographic borders. The role and tasks of projectmanagers around the globe are researched and documented to define each credential. The strength ofPMIs credentials is that they are portable and not tied to any single method, standard, or organization.

    PMIs certification program is designed to ensure that all credential holders have demonstrated their

    competence through fair and valid measures. Steps are taken to ensure only the most reliable testingmeasures are used in the assessment of candidates. For example, interviews can be influenced by howdifficult the interviewer tends to be, how well the candidate is performing that day, and even how manyquestions the interviewer asks along the same line of questioning.

    PMI certification and credentials are also developed by project management practitioners forpractitioners. The certification program is driven by the thousands of credential holders who volunteer tospend time constructing and refining the examination questions utilized by PMI. These volunteersrepresent the diversity of PMIs market, coming from every region of the world, industry, job level, andexperience level.

    The exam questions are monitored through industry-standard statistical procedures, also overseen byvolunteers. Finally, PMIs entire certification program is supervised by the Certification Governance

    Council (CGC), a committee of PMI credential holders who have a board mandate to oversee PMIscredentials.

    A candidate is assessed by examining his or her competence using:

    Reviewing Education and ExperienceA combination of education and/or experience inproject management is required for each certification.

    Testing CompetenceThe candidate is required to apply project management concepts andexperience to potential on-the-job situations through a series of scenario-based questions.

    Ongoing DevelopmentMaintenance of a PMI certification requires the accumulation ofongoing professional development and education or, in the case of the CAPMcertification, re-certification.
