Thanks, Kimberly. Any progress on adding the micro-credentials stats?

Dear Kimberly
Thanks for sharing the PMI Fact File Stats for December 2022
What is the balance that the PMI makes about this year?

Here is the updated trend chart. While membership is still in a free fall, DASSM and DASM certifications are still showing the most growth.

Hello Rami - we are still awaiting more data on these certs, thanks for your patience!

It was found, compared to December 2021:
- A 3.04% drop in the number of members

- A 9.25% growth in the number of PMI-ACP certifications

- A 3.37% growth in the number of PMP certifications

PMI-ACP and PMP corresponds to the number of certifications with the smallest increase

Growth in the number of certified people:

- CAPM: 14.30%

- PMI-RMP: 35.57%

- PMI-SP: 12.22%

- PMI-PBA: 11.86%

- PgMP: 17.63%

-PfMP: 16.03%

Is it too early to draw conclusions or could this weak growth in the number of PMP and PMI-ACP certified people be a consequence of PMI's departure from the strategic focus?

I've been here thinking to myself

How many people were certified in that certification that came to fill the gap in the certifications proposed by PMI

What is this certification?
