Through its training programs, PMGS offers support for validation and monitoring of the participant’s PMI registration profile through to the PgMP® exam.

PMGS has developed two training programs to acquire skills and prepare for certification :

Section 4Steps to certification

  • Create a profile and complete online an application on the PMI® website : www.pmi.org
  • Upon the approval of the candidate’s application, the candidate’s profile will be reviewed by a committee composed of PMI Program Management experts.
  • Following the committee’s successful review of the candidate’s profile, the PMI sends a letter of eligibility allowing the candidate to take the PgMP® exam. The candidate is then eligible to take the exam for a period of 1 year.
  • The candidate schedules the desired date of examination via the firm Prometric : www.prometric.com
  • Following the success of the computerized test, candidates must pass a Multi-rater Assessment
  • The success of the Multi-rater assessment allows the award of the PgMP ®.

Section 5Exam Information

  • Evaluation 1 – Application Review : The initial evaluation is conducted through an extensive application review during which a panel of Program Managers will perform a review of the candidate’s professional Project and Program Management experience.
  • Evaluation 2 – Multiple-Choice Examination : The next step is conducted through a multiple-choice examination (170 multiple choice questions) in which the candidate will be called upon to demonstrate the ability to apply knowledge to both situational and scenario-based questions.
  • Evaluation 3 – Multi-rater Assessment (MRA) : Once candidates pass the examination, they are taken to the third and final evaluation, which is the MRA. Similar to a “360-degree review process”, a team of raters selected by each candidate selects will assess the candidate’s abilities to perform tasks that are pertinent to Program Management.
