How to renew your PuMP Certification
Great to see you’re keen to keep your PuMP Certification up to date and valid!
Why PuMP Certification is worth keeping
PuMP Certification demonstrates your ability to develop performance measures that are meaningful, aligned to strategy, implemented efficiently and focused on driving performance improvement. This is a powerful capability to include in your resume and give you an edge over other candidates for promotions and new positions.
PuMP is certified by APMG, the world’s leading accreditation and exam institute for professional certifications. APMG host our PuMP exam and perform the grading, issue your official certificate (when you pass), and also provide you with this cool badge:
How to apply for re-certification in PuMP
After you register and pay your re-certification fee, we will process your application and get your details across to APMG. They will send you instructions to sit the exam again.
Here’s how the exam works:
|Time limit:||1 hour|
|Number of questions:||40 questions, randomly selected from a pool of 99 questions.|
|Question style:||All the questions are multiple-choice.|
|Open book:||Yes, you are encouraged to have your PuMP Blueprint training workbook at your side. Our primary intent for the exam is as a revision tool, and we’re not trying to catch you out with trick questions.|
|Pass rate:||A score of 75% is needed to pass. You’ll get your score immediately on completing the exam, along with a feedback report.|
|Certificate:||With a passing score, you will receive a link to download your PuMP Certificate within minutes, along with instructions for how to access and use your digital PuMP Certified badge.|
After you have passed the exam, you will have your re-certification in PuMP! This means a few cool things for you:
- Keep the term ‘PuMP Certified’ or just ‘PuMP’ following your name in your signature and resume, along with other accreditations you have. For example:
Stacey Barr, BSc, Grad Dip, PuMP
- Add your ‘PuMP Certified’ digital badge to your social media profiles.
- 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 5 years
Your PuMP Certification will stay valid for a period of 5 years from the date of your passing the exam.
The reason for the expiration of five 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 5 years with an invitation to do the exam again, for a re-certification fee of $200AUD, 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.
Who is eligible to apply for PuMP Certification?
Anyone who has participated in any PuMP Blueprint workshop or program, is eligible to take the exam and gain PuMP Certification.
If you are applying for re-certification, our database will confirm that you have already held PuMP Certification, and are eligible for renewal.
