The Project Sherpa Consultant Certification Program

Beyond PSCC-1 there are two more certificates that can be earned. These are based on evidence is collected through the completion of Skill Steps rather than exams. Skill Steps are specific customer-facing interactions which we will guide you to complete. In each of these interactions, you will be putting some of the core training material into practice. Each Skill Level requires a specific set of Skill Steps to be completed and submitted to PS Principles for review. Upon approval of those steps, you will continue to the next level. 

While there are 6 levels to the program, while there are 3 levels of certification.

PSCC-1: Earned after completing Skill Level 1 (which includes passing the PSCC-1 Exam)

PSCC-2: Earned after completing the Skill Steps outlined in Skill Levels 2 & 3

PSCC-3: Earned after completing the Skill Steps outlined in Skill Levels 4 & 5

** Note: PSCC-3 will complete at least 4 activities each year from Skill Level 6 to maintain "Active" status.
