PuMP® Certification Exam Registration
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 questions (chosen at random from a pool of 80 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.
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 Consultants.)
- You can brag about how you really know your stuff when it comes to performance measurement!
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.
