PMO Learning offers two core PMO certifications. Each certification offers something slightly different to each other and we have aligned each one of them to the four levels of PMO experience. Aligning against the levels gives you a quick reference on which certifications are most likely to be the right one for you. We’re on hand to talk you through the options if you need further detail at any time.
– Portfolio, Programme and Project Offices (P3O)
P3O Foundation is suitable for those having worked in a support role for over two years or more. It’s a great certification to do if you’re wanting to learn more about the different types of PMOs that exist and the services they provide. It’s a 3-day course.
P3O Practitioner is aimed at those who are managing or looking to moving into a management role in PMO and specifically looking to implement a PMO. This is a 2-day course and you must already have the P3O Foundation. Lots of people opt to do both the Foundation and Practitioner together in 5 days.
The PMO Essentials from the House of PMO
The House of PMO, a new professional body for PMO professionals are launching four new PMO certifications this year.
The House of PMO mission, which we 100% support, is to create a home for PMO professionals where they can develop themselves, support the development of others and contribute to the development of the PMO profession.
The first level course – PMO Essentials for PMO Administrators – is now available to book through PMO Learning.
The certifications are called PMO Essentials and the four include:
- PMO Essentials for PMO Administrators
- PMO Essentials for PMO Analysts (launching September 2021)
- PMO Essentials for PMO Managers (launching December 2021)
- PMO Essentials for PMO Directors (launching February 2022)
The certification courses will be accredited by APMG, the global examination institute, and the first level is now available.
PMO Learning will be the first accredited training organisation (ATO) licenced to deliver the new courses.
