Certification programs

To help state agencies build expertise in PM, GTA sponsors the PM certification program. The program is designed to better align traditional PM to state business practices. The program provides the PM with skills beyond the traditional PM professional (PMP®) credential. The curriculum, assessments, reviews, and coaching are provided by GTA staff and structured to teach state PMs how to deliver a valuable business solution in support of an agency's mission. There is no charge to state agencies for courses taught by GTA staff. See the required courses for each program below.
