New PMI Credentials for Project Management in Development News

In response to market demand to distinguish specialized roles on project teams, the Project Management Institute (PMI) Certification Department will introduce two new high-stake credentials in 2008: one for project risk management and one for project scheduling. Because projects are getting bigger, more complex and more globally diverse, the market suggests that risk and scheduling are key aspects of a project. As a result, PMI initiated a two-pronged global research study, employing its dedicated research function, to determine the importance of specialty credentials.

First, PMI conducted a survey to determine what practitioners considered important in a specialty credential and what it should mean to the holder of the credential. After the initial research, PMI conducted a role delineation study using subject matter expert practitioners. During this study, the practitioners defined the tasks of a risk or scheduling professional and helped to create the exam specifications for these clearly delineated roles..

Eligibility and Continuing Education Requirements for The New Credentials

As part of the process in developing the credentials, PMI works with subject matter experts within project risk management and project scheduling. These subject matter experts provided input and came to a consensus to determine eligibility requirements for each credential.

Eligibility is as follows:

Project Scheduling

  1. Three to five years of project scheduling experience
  2. With a bachelor’s degree or global equivalent have:
    • 30 contact hours of formal education
    • Within the past five years, a minimum of 3,500 hours of unique, non-overlapping experience in project scheduling
  3. With a high school diploma or global equivalent have:
    • 40 contact hours of formal education 
    • Within the past five years, 5,000 hours of unique, non-overlapping experience in project scheduling

Project Risk Management

  1. Three to five years of project risk management experience
  2. With a bachelor’s degree or global equivalent have:
    • 30 contact hours of formal education
    • Within the past five years, a minimum of 3,000 hours of unique, non-overlapping experience in project risk management
  3. With a high school diploma or global equivalent have:
    • 40 contact hours of formal education 
    • Within the past five years, 4,500 hours of unique, non-overlapping experience in project risk management

Continuing Certification Requirements

  1. Must acquire 30 PDUs per 3-year (30-hour) cycle in the specialty area of project risk management or project scheduling to maintain the credential.
