How long your PuMP® Certification will remain valid
Your PuMP® Certification will stay valid for a period of 3 years from the date of your passing the exam.
The reason for the expiration of three years is that the PuMP® Blueprint methodology is something that we believe needs to be practiced regularly, and updated as the methodology updates and evolves over time, to retain current knowledge and skill. We will contact certificate holders at a period close to 3 years with an invitation to do the exam again, for a small fee, and confirm that their skills have been retained.
Having a requirement for re-certification will ensure the value of the certification as something that is an objective indicator of current knowledge. This is also a requirement that one of our certifiers, the Balanced Scorecard Institute, has as a condition of providing the certification for PuMP.
The PuMP® Performance Measure Blueprint Workshop
Through case studies and a series of interactive small-group workshops, participants will apply the balanced scorecard concepts to meet the challenges facing a typical organization.
