How Much Does a PgMP Certification Cost?

The cost of obtaining a Program Management Professional (PgMP) Certification Online can vary depending on several factors. It depends on whether or not you are a member of the Project Management Institute (PMI), as well as the cost of study materials and exam preparation courses.

As of 2024, the current PMI membership fee is $139 – $149 per year for individuals. If you are a PMI member, the cost to apply for the PgMP certification exam is $800 USD. If you are not a PMI member, the cost to apply for the PgMP certification exam is $1,000 USD.

In addition to the exam fee, you may also need to consider the cost of study materials and exam preparation courses. These can range in cost depending on the provider and the type of material and can include books, online courses, in-person classes, and practice exams.

It is important to consider these costs as part of your overall budget for obtaining a PgMP certification. However, the benefits of achieving this certification can include increased earning potential, greater recognition within the field of program management, and expanded career opportunities.

How Much Time Should You Allocate to the PgMP Application Process?

PgMP Application is entirely different from PMP or some other PMI certifications. Other than program illustration, you need to address the 5 experience-based questions. These inquiries are significant. In the event that you have not tended to them appropriately, PMI will send your application back for improvement, or after 3 endeavors, PMI will dismiss them. Composing an application can require 7 to 14 days. PMI can take somewhere close to 6 – 10 weeks to confirm your application.

How is the PgMP Exam Structured?

The PgMP Exam is a rigorous, four-hour exam consisting of 170 multiple-choice questions. It is designed to assess a candidate’s knowledge, program management skills, and abilities in the area of Program Management.

The PgMP exam is based on the PMI Program Management Standard, 5th Edition. Also, it covers the five performance domains of program management: Strategic Program Management, Program Life Cycle Stages, Benefits Management, Stakeholder Management, and Program Governance.

It is a computer-based test administered at Pearson VUE testing centers. Candidates have four hours to complete the exam, and there is no scheduled break during the exam.

How Long Does it Take to Prepare for the PgMP Exam?

Everything relies on how long you can commit consistently. On the off chance that you can devote 1-2 hours of valuable time, you can hope to be prepared in 2-3 months. Going past 4 months can be overkill. The best is to look for direction from the masters, particularly somebody who is PMI-REP, and somebody who has helped others accomplish their Program Management Certification.

   Tips for Exam Preparation

  • Review the PgMP handbook.
  • Read The Standard for Program Management book, 5th Edition.
  • Review PgMP Exam Content Outline.
  • Use the PgMP Sample Questions provided by ProThoughts to assess your knowledge.
  • Partners accredited by PMI chapters. Additionally, you can examine self-study publications written by Authorized Training Partners and other respectable education companies.
  • Refer to the PgMP Examination Content Outline at least once.
  • Moreover, you should think about using some reputable question banks to increase your study.

  • Kindly respond in the first person. PMI is interested in examples of your personal and individual contributions to the program.

Can I Retake the PgMP Exam?

Yes, you can retake the PgMP exam if you are not successful on your first attempt. However, there are certain restrictions and requirements that you should be aware of.

If you do not pass the exam on your first attempt, you must wait at least one calendar month before you can take the exam again. You may take the exam up to three times within a year from the date of your application approval.

If you do not pass the exam after three attempts, you must wait one year from the date of your last exam attempt before you can apply to take the exam again. In addition, you will be required to provide evidence of additional education and/or professional development activities related to program management.

Each time you take the exam, you will need to pay the exam fee. The current exam fee for PMI members is $800 USD, while the fee for non-members is $1,000 USD.

It is important to note that while retaking the exam is an option, it is also important to use the experience to identify areas where you need to improve your knowledge and skills. Consider taking additional study courses, participating in study groups, and using practice exams to help you prepare for the exam.
