MSP Re-Registration (Practitioner)
The Re-Registration exam should be taken by MSP Practitioners within 3-5 years of their original certification to demonstrate their recency of knowledge and commitment to Continuing Professional Development.
Re-Registration applies to Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner levels.
MSP Advanced Practitioner
The Advanced Practitioner level is intended for anyone in, or aspiring to, a senior role within a programme to demonstate their competence in applying their MSP knowledge to a complex programme.
Since SPOCE ran the world's first MSP® course in March 2000, more nearly 100,000 exams have been taken.
Along with the other Project, Programme and Risk Management guidances in the Best Management Practice set, MSP aims to:
- provide industry referenced standards
- provide a framework of best practice principles and concepts drawn from latest experiences and proven practice
- enable practitioners to adapt the guidance to real life situations
- be accessible by teams and organisations as well as by individual practitioners.
- help practitioners improve their decision making and to become better at implementing beneficial change
- enable individuals to demonstrate their level of knowledge and understanding of the each product by obtaining a globally recognised qualification.
The "Managing Successful Programmes" (MSP®) guidance provides and maintains a strategic view over the set of projects, aligning and co-ordinating them within a programme of business change in support of specific business strategies. Programme Management provides the framework for implementing business strategies and initiatives, or large scale change, where there is a "vision" of the programme’s outcome – a transformed organisation for example.
