How to properly display the achieved certification
I'm trying to find information to provide to my employer on how to properly display my accreditation as we are having a disagreement about this. I know I read it somewhere, I just can't seem to find it.

Do you mean how to show it with your name in an e-mail message or letter? If so, it would just be "Jayme Taylor, PMP"...

I understand how to display it, but my employer wants it to go after my job title, not my name and I'd like it after my name and I was hoping there was (or thought I'd read it) something that states the proper way to display it. Our signatures are set up by our IT department and it's been a hassle to get it displayed properly.

Is there any written standard that I can provide to them?
The best way to present your credential is Name, PMP.

On another note, you can also display it in your email signature, When you receive you Accliam badge, they give you the code for this.

Jayme Taylor, PMP is the best possible option
Your name, PMP
This is the best one, I believe.

I am not aware of a specific PMI standard, but yes, there is a generic standard approach out there for the accreditation to go after the name, comma-separated, with highest level degree/cert first.

The accreditation is specific to the individual, not the role. It does not make sense to have the letters after the role. The role does not have a MBA or PMP, the person does. The role/title typically goes on the second line

Me neither, I agree with Andrew. The norm is to put it after your name.

I am curious as to why your employers is being so picky about it. It’s a personal preference how to show your accomplishments. How does this affect him ?

I 100% agree with your comments. And the way you've worded it, is something I will use in my conversation with them.

Thank you!

I am unsure why it's such an issue at my employer, but I believe it has more to do with how our signatures are set up in the background. It was originally after my name, but because we use all MS products, instead of my intials being JT, it turned it into CT (I have no idea how, and personally believe our IT company is causing the grief.

I was hoping there was something written, so I could say, this is how it's supposed to shown. But that being said, there was a comment above, by Andrew Craig, about how the accreditation is to the person, not the role.

Thanks to everyone for their comments, I will have another conversation with my employer about this; they want us to have the certifications, they just don't seem to know how to properly use them.
