Announcing PMI’s New Scheduling Credential: PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP)SM
In October 2007, PMI announced the development of a new credential within the specialty area of project scheduling, now formally introduced as the PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP)SM. PMI is excited to announce a major milestone: on-line applications are now being accepted for this credential. This is important for the candidates who have recently expressed interest in PMI’s new credential.
Our near term objective is to secure at least 100 approved scheduling credential candidates to take the examination during the incentive period from 30 May – 31 July 2008. This will enable PMI to establish an official cut-score in a timely manner. Attendees at the May PMI College of Scheduling Conference can apply on-line at PMI’s booth. Interested candidates should bring their information on their project scheduling experience and education. Click here for a copy of the PMI-SP Handbook on what you need to apply.
