MSP Certification - Practitioner
The MSP® certification scheme has been developed to offer three levels of certification: Foundation, Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner. AXELOS has accredited a number of Examination Institutes (EIs) who then accredit a network of Accredited Training Organizations (ATOs), including their trainers and course material. The ATOs and accredited trainers offer MSP training courses and examinations.
Purpose of the Practitioner Certification
The purpose of the practitioner certification is to determine whether a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSP guidance to apply the guidance to their own work and, hence, act as an informed member of a programme management team. That is, someone responsible for managing, leading, supporting or advising on work within an MSP environment. Candidates should be capable of applying the MSP guidance in a relatively uncomplicated programme within an environment that uses MSP.
This level is also a prerequisite for programme management professionals progressing toward the advanced practitioner certification, and those aspiring to become programme management professionals in the future.
Project managers, BCMs, experts and advisers working within a programme office and other specialist/governance roles involved in supporting programmes following the MSP guidance together with those wishing to pursue higher level certifications (e.g. Programme Managers). This level is also suitable for SROs.
