How to become Certified in the PuMP® Performance Measure Blueprint Methodology
The PuMP® Performance Measure Blueprint is certified by the George Washington University College of Professional Studies and the Balanced Scorecard Institute. So after you complete the PuMP® Performance Measure Blueprint training, you can have your learning formally acknowledged and add another powerful certification to your resume.
Why PuMP® Certification is worth having
PuMP® Certification objectively demonstrates your ability to develop performance measures that are meaningful, aligned to strategy, implemented efficiently and focused on driving performance improvement.
How to apply for PuMP® Certification
After completing the PuMP® Blueprint Workshop, the PuMP® Blueprint Online Program or a PuMP® Blueprint In-house Workshop, you can opt to take the PuMP® Certification exam, online.
You’ll have a one hour time limit to answer 40 multiple-choice questions (chosen at random from a pool of 80 multiple-choice questions), and you’ll get your score immediately. A score of 75% is needed to pass. We will send out your official certificate within 6 weeks of your passing the exam.
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.
Who is eligible to take the PuMP® Certification exam?
If you have participated in any PuMP® Blueprint workshop or program, you are eligible to take the exam and gain PuMP® Certification.
If your participation is in 2013 or later, your fee covers the certification. You will receive a special link to take the exam online. For more information, contact us.
If your participation in a PuMP® Blueprint workshop or program was prior to 2013, you can still take the certification exam, but you will need to pay a certification fee of $200AUD (plus GST for Aussies). You can read more and register for the exam here.
