Very interesting, thanks for sharing.

Thank you for sharing this info.

Thank you for sharing the info.

Love this centralized information. Would it be possible to include number of volunteers? I use this information as a chapter leader to promote PMI and our chapter.

Thank you for sharing great info

Thanks Kimberly for sharing.
By the way, I see the numbers of PMI-CP don't match with those of the Registry.
How can it be managed?
Any suggestions?

Mario, this data is for October so maybe a few more candidates passed the exam in November and that’s why you see a slight discrepancy.

Mario, on another note, the registry gives you the certified candidates per country only and there is no option to check for all regions at once so how did you manage to see PMI-CP holders in all regions? Thanks!

Hi Rami, thank you for your feedback.
I guessed that the numbers of PMI fact file would match or have the regestry as a source. Are these numbers related. How can we see it?

Thanks for sharing which let me know the clear data.

Hi Rami, you are right, and I agree. I understand. Wouldn't it be suitable to have a the fact file linked to the registry to match its numbers, using power bi? This is my suggestion.

Hello Mario - thanks for your questions regarding how data is captured. Please note this information is pulled internally and not part of the Registry, as some certification holders have the option of displaying this information. We are looking to refine our metrics in 2024, so please stay tuned for more details. Many thanks!

Hello Wendy - that's a great question and we will certainly keep this in consideration as we refine our metrics for 2024. Thanks for your patience as we evaluate this process!

Hello Kimberly.
Thank you for your feedback and congratulations for the great work.
