Program Management Professional (PgMP) ® is a credential offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI®) to the qualifiers of the PgMP® exam. It certifies the individuals as having the requisite experience in program management. It demonstrates their competency to oversee multiple, related projects in order to achieve the strategic goals of the organization.

To be more precise, as a program manager, you’re a senior-level practitioner at the forefront of advancing your organization’s strategic goals. You manage multiple, related projects in a coordinated way, achieving benefits that could not occur if the projects were handled separately. Your leadership is instrumental. With program management maturity, an organization’s projects are far more successful than without it — 76 percent compared to 54 percent according to the 2015 Pulse of the Profession® report. The Program Management Professional (PgMP)® is a visible sign of your advanced experience and skill which gives you a distinct advantage in employment and promotion.

PMI - PgMP® certification is an international, expert-level credential designed to ensure skills and knowledge required for Program Managers and a huge experience of Project Managers/Directors to deliver the strategic objectives which enhance business results. The PMI-PgMP® training validates work experience and knowledge of project risk management to manage multiple, related projects and navigate complex activities that span functions, organizations, regions or cultures and to align results with organizational goals. vCare provides a study guide for the PMI-PgMP® exam.

Our comprehensive workshop covers the Program Management processes and activities from beginning to end, honing your skills in the six prime focus areas: Governance, Prioritization, Escalation, Resource Management, Benefits Management, and Stakeholder Engagement. As a PgMP credential holder, you will be able to promote better integration and coordination of multiple projects for the overall benefit of the program.
