The Value of Being a CPSM

SMPS is effectively validating your skills for your management team – the CPSM certification is legitimate!

Some certifications are very much “pay a fee to take a test and get your cert,” and those are the least valuable certifications. SMPS requires you to join their professional society first, then you have to prove you have the relevant experience to be considered for the certification, then you get to pay to take the test. This certification, where you have to demonstrate not just that you’ve studied a topic, but that you also have the knowledge and at least some experience to back it up, is validated and valuable.

When you apply for the CPSM program, you are taking your first step toward joining a distinguished group of professionals who have made a commitment to professional excellence, career advancement, and an ongoing pursuit of knowledge.
