The ChPP standard is a benchmark of professional project practice, providing independent recognition of your proven capabilities.
It allows holders to demonstrate responsible leadership and the competencies necessary for effective project, programme or portfolio management – including the ability to manage a complex project and ability to use appropriate tools, processes and techniques.
There are three routes to gaining ChPP accreditation dependent on whether you hold recognised assessments for technical knowledge and professional practice or simply meeting the eligibility criteria without these formal assessments.
ChPP robustly assesses the following areas, requiring you to show:
- Technical knowledge: advanced technical knowledge and understanding of how to deliver projects, programmes or portfolios.
- Professional practice: successful application of technical knowledge that involved uncertainty or conflicting objectives; high levels of unpredictability or risk; multiple work packages, projects or programmes; multiple interdependent stakeholders.
- Ethics and continuing CPD: you will need to commit to professional ethics and show continuing professional development.
You will also require two proposers.
Accreditation requires approximately 25-35 hours of effort with driven candidates expected to achieve ChPP in 4-6 months.
