RMC Fellow's Certificate™

Successful professionals rarely have only one skill set. People who work to improve their organizations are successful because they are able to work in various roles on teams and use multiple skills as needed. The RMC Fellow's Certificate program recognizes individuals who excel in multiple disciplines and bridge skill gaps for their organizations—whether their projects are large or small in scope. These generalizing specialists usually focus in one area, but are also able to assist in other roles making them valued team members. The RMC Fellow's Certificate program supports all of the challenges outlined above, and delivers unique recognition as a result.

If you are a professional project manager, business analyst, or agile leader looking for career-related credibility, RMC Learning Solutions is pleased to offer its new RMC Fellow's Certificate™. The RMC Fellow's Certificate not only provides an extensive amount of learning, but also offers the opportunity to earn a credential from an organization recognized around the world.
