    PgMP Credentialing ProcessUnlike other PMI credentials, you must pass a sequence of three evaluations to obtain the PgMP credential.

    Evaluation 1 Application Review: Extensive application review during which a panel of program managers will perform a review of your professional project and program management experience.Evaluation 2 Multiple-Choice Examination: Multiple-choice examination in which you will be called upon to demonstrate your ability to apply your knowledge to both situational and scenario-based questions.Evaluation 3 Multi-rater Assessment (MRA): MRA is similar to a 360-degree review process. A team of raters that you select will assess your abilities to perform tasks that are pertinent to program management.

    Application Completeness ReviewPre screening of the applicationsReviewed for completenessMay be returned back with comments

    Ex:You must describe the strategy that drives the program; the strategic goal given to you to accomplish by the organization. (This does not include the organization strategic goal.) The strategy that drives the program must be actionable and should be measurable. If you were not directly assigned the strategic goal to accomplish for each program, you are not considered the program manager by PMI standard. Also, this should not include the overall strategic goal of the Organization.Please review your responses to the eight summary statements. While the panel will make the final decision on your responses, I recommend that you take this opportunity to ensure that your responses concur with the explanations on the attached document. These responses should show clearly your experience as a program manager.
