About Course

  • What is this course about?

    Program Management Professional (PgMP®) is a credential that is offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI®) to individuals who successfully qualify the PgMP® exam. It certifies 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.

    Simplilearn’s PgMP® course has been created to help professionals prepare for and clear the certification exam conducted by the PMI®. It is an ideal course package for people who aspire to make a career in program management.

  • Why is this certification popular?

    PgMP® certification is globally recognized and demanded. It helps managers to increase their visibility and value with their organization. It also increases their chances of landing a better remuneration.

    Programs help large corporations to align their activities with business goals without compromising on speed, quality, and efficiency. Program management professionals can help their organizations to become cost efficient, achieve growth, and deliver stakeholder objectives.

    This skillset is highly desired across industries, including manufacturing, retail, energy, aerospace, technology, and media. Some large governmental organizations, too, prefer program management professionals to oversee their important programs.

  • What learning benefits do you get from Simplilearn’s training?

    Simplilearn (Global PMI® REP ID 3147) offers online PgMP® training coupled with PgMP® live webinars, sample PgMP® exam questions, and mock PgMP® practice exams. Simplilearn's PgMP® professional certification training lets you enhance your knowledge on program management and get ready for the actual PgMP® certification exam.

    Lecture materials, quizzes, and multiple choice tests have been formatted to specifically address the Project Management Institute’s five program management performance domains.

    The course has also been enriched with different videos that will serve as valuable resources for learners. These videos provide sufficient context for the lessons and also contain a case study discussion and a summary of the important concepts learned.

    Another highlight is the 12 essential and detailed tips & tricks videos to crack the PgMP® exam. These discuss key strategies for handling different question types. The videos also look at some of the specific topics of PgMP® syllabus and talk about key points for handling these. For example, each information domain has a video devoted to it with information on important points and question types. There is an exclusive video on tackling tricky questions and another on time management.

    Candidates are offered PDUs at the end of the training.

  • What are the career benefits in-store for you?

    PMI®’s PgMP® credential is beginning to get recognized across industries. Many prestigious employment postings now state that a PgMP® certification is highly desired or required for their program management positions. In fact, a large number of companies working with the U.S. Government now require PgMP® certified individuals for handling their programs.

    The certification essentially demonstrates your commitment to the profession of program management.

    Further, program managers with an understanding of business strategy and program processes at a level required by the PMI® are quite rare. The selection process is highly selective and difficult and there are only around 1000 PgMP® certified managers today in the world. Hence, you can distinguish yourself from other program professionals by obtaining this certification.

    According to CIO.com, many professionals have reportedly benefitted in terms of new jobs, promotions, or salary increases due to a PgMP® certification. Also, nearly everyone stated that it helped their professional networking activities and put them in a better position for future opportunities.

  • Who should do this course?

    If you expect to be working as a program management practitioner for 5 or more years, then this course is an excellent choice. It’s the perfect fit if you define projects, assign project managers and oversee programs. If you’re a program manager looking to demonstrate a proven ability to manage complex, multiple projects and align results to organizational goals; increase your visibility and value with your organization; and separate yourself in the eyes of employers, the PgMP® credential is for you.
