A few reminders about how PuMP Certification works…

PuMP® Certification demonstrates your ability to develop performance measures that are meaningful, aligned to strategy, implemented efficiently and focused on driving performance improvement.

After completing your PuMP training (either via the workshop or the online program), you can opt to take the PuMP® Certification exam, online. Here are the details:

Time limit: 1 hour
Number of questions: 40 questions (randomly selected from a pool of 80 questions)
Question style: All the questions are multiple-choice.
Pass rate: A score of 75% is needed to pass. You’ll get your score immediately on completing the exam.

You may have your PuMP® Blueprint materials at hand while you take the exam (it is an open book exam).

We will send out your official certificate as a pdf within 2 weeks of your passing the exam.

What happens if you don’t pass?

If, for whatever reason, you don’t pass your first attempt at the exam, we will contact you and arrange a quick chat to see what might be holding you back. After a bit of coaching, you’ll get to take a second attempt at the exam.

What happens when you do pass?

After you have passed the exam, you are PuMP Certified! This means a few cool things for you:

  • You can add the term ‘PuMP’ following your name in your signature and resume, along with other accreditations you have. For example:
    Stacey Barr, BSc, Grad Dip, PuMP
  • You are entitled to use the PuMP Blueprint materials within your organisation. You won’t, however, be entitled to use PuMP commercially or to represent me or my brand or company in any way. (That’s an entitlement just for licensed PuMP Partners.)
  • You can brag about how you really know your stuff when it comes to performance measurement!

Your PuMP® Certification will remain valid for 3 years

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 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 updated and retained.

Having a requirement for re-certification will ensure the value of the certification as something that is an objective indicator of current knowledge.

Here’s the link and password to take the exam…

You will need to register first, so we know it’s you taking the exam, and so we have your details to send out your certificatea afterwards.
