As the Construction Product Owner, I am thrilled to announce that the PMI-SCP was launched today! Here is the description you will see on the Construction landing page. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

Level up, build your expertise and demonstrate your advanced knowledge in construction project management by earning the PMI-SCP™. After first gaining the PMI-CP™, you’ll need to take three more skill-sharpening courses—self-paced to fit your schedule. Upon successful completion, you will receive a certificate of completion.

These advanced courses are designed for higher-level skill development for senior-level professionals. Each self-paced module is a 6-10 hour commitment. PDUs earned from these courses can be applied to certification renewals.

The PMI Construction Professional (PMI-CP)™ certification and PMI-CP™ capstone exam do not require completion of these courses—but if you have what it takes, you can move up to the next level and earn the PMI-SCP™.

The question I have is has this announcement changed your view of the Construction curriculum or has it enticed you to continue your journey? Let me know!

Hello Robert, can you please outline the PMI Construction Professional certs? What are all the levels, I see you mention PMI-CP and PMI-SCP (what does the acronym stand for?) are there others? Sorry, don't have the time to search the site. Also, I have not heard of these and wished I did. Thanks for your help.

Marcellia, check PMI's website via the following link for the requirements and courses related to the PMI-CP: https://www.pmi.org/certifications/construction

PMI-CP stands for PMI Construction Professional and SCP stands for Senior Construction Professional so there are only two levels for now. Hope this helps!

My only question is why these three specific microcredits could elevate someone to a CP-"S"enior level. Perhaps an experience-based "S" would make more sense? For instance, a combination of ten years of work experience alongside a project management certification.

The intent of the PMI-SCP certificate of completion is to reinforce the importance of the 3 courses that were originally part of the CP certification but were removed as part of the streamlined version we subsequently released. There is still great content to be consumed after one attains the PMI-CP certification and we want to encourage that journey. The CP certification does come with a 3 year experience requirement, keep in mind.
