    MSP® Practitioner

    Purpose of the Practitioner Certification

    The purpose of the practitioner certification is to determine whether a candidate has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSP guidance to apply the guidance to their own work and, hence, act as an informed member of a program management team.

Candidates should be capable of applying the MSP guidance in a relatively uncomplicated program within an environment that uses MSP.
