Effective 1 November 2013, PMI will no longer require the Multi Rater Assessment evaluation as part of the application process for the Program Management Professional PgMP® credential. After careful consideration to improve the credential evaluation process, we are confident that we are able to assess the competence, education and skills of program management professionals with the comprehensive examination and panel review, which will still be required to earn the credential.


The credential pricing will be reduced to reflect this change. On 1 November 2013 the new pricing will be:


Exam Administration Type Pricing (USD) Pricing (Euro)
Computer-based testing (CBT) member $800 € 655
Computer-based testing (CBT) nonmember $1,000 € 815
Paper-based testing (PBT) member $700 € 570
Paper-based testing (PBT) nonmember $900 € 735
Reexamination CBT member $600 € 490
Reexamination CBT nonmember $800 € 655
Reexamination PBT member $500 € 410
Reexamination PBT nonmember $700 € 570


Current PgMP candidates who are affected by this change will be notified this week. More details, including the revised PgMP Handbook, will be released in the coming weeks. Please refer to PgMP Certification page on PMI.org for the most up-to-date information as it becomes available.


Thank you,
