Why the Chartered Project Management Professional Designation

As a Project Management (PM) professional, you are a leader in your field. Employers, colleagues and clients turn to you for strategic advice, clear guidance, and leadership on all aspects of PM. Make the most of your PM knowledge and experience, and get started on the path towards the Chartered Professional in Project Management (CPMP™) designation – the gold standard of PM professionals.

New York Professional Institute is the designated certifying body for Chartered Professional  in the United States for the nationally and Internationally  recognized Chartered Professional in Project Management (CPMP™) designation.

The CPMP designation, pronounced C-P-M-P(each letter is said individually), represents a commitment to an International standard of excellence and sets a benchmark for the practice of effective Project Management. It emphasizes the strategic role of Project management in business and plays an important role in securing PM’s position as an equal business partner at the senior management table.

The CPMP™ designation signifies that an individual has achieved and continues to actively demonstrate mastery of the PM body of knowledge. Through a national examination and assessment process, each CPMP designate must demonstrate the core competencies relevant to the PM profession. Certification is an essential tool for maintaining high performance standards. The designation assures employers, clients and other PM professionals that a CPMP has committed to abiding by a professional code of ethics, a breach of which will result in disciplinary action including the possible removal of the designation.

CPMPs are required to report a minimum of 100 hours of professional development activity every three years on a cumulative basis and a minimum of 20 hours each year. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) signifies continued mastery of the CPMP Competency Framework, which outlines 44 discipline specific professional competencies.

The CPMP designation can enhance your career opportunities and compensation potential. An increasing number of organizations require or prefer that successful candidates for PM positions hold, or are working towards obtaining, the CPMP designation. This is particularly true for senior PM positions.

The CPMP designation is recognized by all CPMP Member Associations and can be transferred between these same Member Associations.
