The Project Management Skills Certified Professional (PMSCP®) Certification

For a number of years, project leaders have been trained in the tools, techniques, and procedures of project management, but they’ve had limited access to resources that focus on the skills they need to lead effectively. The PM Skills® courses and PMSCP® certification are designed to help practitioners close that skills gap.

What is the PMSCP® certification, and what can you expect to find in the PM Skills® courses included in the certification track? Find out a bit more in the video below:

As the expert in fields such as leadership, communication, negotiation and critical thinking, a certified PMSCP® possesses the knowledge and training to lead their organizations towards improving team function and project completion.

The PM Skills® PMSCP® certification includes 14 courses that are completely online and self-paced, which provides the most flexibility in completing the curriculum. No prerequisites are required for the PM Skills® courses.  The learner must complete all 14 courses before taking the PMSCP® certification exam.

Course Certification Requirements

Upon successfully completing these courses and the final PMSCP® certification exam, you will be awarded the PM Skills® PMSCP® certification. A course will be considered complete when the participant has done all assignments, exercises, review checkpoints, and has received at least a 70% on the course final exam.

*It is recommended that learners complete the Interpersonal Skills for Project Leaders course prior to beginning the others.

Upon completing these requirements, you will be awarded the 
PM Skills® PMSCP® Certification. Certification from PM Skills® includes a Digital Badge and certificate.  All PM Skills® courses carry Project Management Institute Professional Development Units (PDUs).
