Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP®)

Highlight your proven portfolio management skills as well as your ability to lead your organization towards the achievement of objectives.

From vision to profitability.

Your organization works well, but does it do good work? If your role consists of ensuring the answer is yes, then the PfMP® designation will place you at the heart of organizational strategies. Efficient portfolio management is fundamental because it ensures an optimal return on investment for your organization.

The PfMP® designation is evidence of a unique ability to act as a bridge between vision, strategy and profitability in the management of several project portfolios.

Why get the PfMP® certification?

The PfMP® certification opens doors in every industry and connects you with a community of organizations and experienced experts worldwide. Showcase your expertise and directly contribute to achieving your organization’s major objectives.


The PfMP® certification is designed for professionals who would like to manage or are responsible for the management of project portfolios.

To be eligible for the exam, you must meet one of the two following requirements:

1. High school diploma (DES or global equivalent) or the CAPM® certification, and at least 10,500 hours of experience in portfolio management gained in the last 15 years.

2. Four-year degree (bachelor’s or global equivalent) and at least 6,000 hours of experience in portfolio management gained in the last 15 years.

Since portfolio management relies on strategic investment and high-level decision making, it is also mandatory to have at least 8 years of professional experience in the business world.

The exam is held at a Pearson Vue centre in your area.

The cost of the exam is US$800 for members and US$1,000 for non-members.
