To obtain the certification, the candidate must be approved on an online proctored exam of 40 multiple choice questions, achieving a minimum score of 75%.

The exam covers technical aspects related to the methodology, and the candidate has up to 60 minutes to finish it.

The online exam is proctored, like some of the most recognized certifications in the world. It means that the candidate will be able to take the online exam in the most appropriate place and will be monitored throughout the exam by one of our monitors.

The proctored exam can only be scheduled after the completion of the online live course. The candidate will have up to 90 days to schedule and take the exam.

The exam must be scheduled at least 72 hours in advance of the desired / available day and time.

If the candidate fails in the first attempt, it is possible to make a second attempt at the additional cost of US $ 150. This amount should be paid within 10 working days and, after 5 working days, the candidate will have 90 days to schedule and make the second attempt.

Detailed instructions about this process will be available to the candidates after registration.

PMO Global Alliance provides only a digital PMO-CP certificate. It will be sent to the email previously informed by the candidate within 7 days after passing the exam.


The candidates will receive a communication with all the instructions to access the learning system, where they will find all material needed for the study. This message will be sent seven days before the course start. If the candidate registers after this date, the message will be sent within 12 hours after registration.

All classes will be recorded and will be available to be accessed by the candidates for twelve months after course completion. In this way, it will be possible to review and study the topics for the exam and, later, to use the recorded classes to solve doubts and remember concepts.

The concepts of the PMO VALUE RING methodology are useful, regardless of the use of the software that supports it.

The great advantage of using the PMOVR software is that it gives access to a benchmarking database with the collective intelligence of the PMO leaders community, allowing the user to get recommendations on which paths to take in PMO design.
