The Chartered Project Professional standard is a benchmark that recognises the achievement of a defined level of technical knowledge, professional practice and ethical behaviour.


As the only chartered membership organisation for the project profession, we set the benchmark. As a Chartered Project Professional (ChPP), you set the example. Whether you manage projects, programmes or portfolios, or are employed in a key control or enabling function, chartered status shows you’ve achieved the highest standard of expertise and have proven your exceptional project capabilities.

Our Chartered Project Professionals span a range of sectors, ages and career stages, from organisations big and small. And while we provide several routes, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve gained previous qualifications – it’s your proven project experience and technical knowledge that count.

Chartered Project Professionals represent the very best practice, the highest quality of skill, and pride in what they’ve achieved. ChPP isn’t just for our members, and we offer a range of support services and tools for all candidates. Our application guidance tells you everything you need to know.

ChPP is more than a standard. It’s an inclusive community of like-minded professionals who want to excel at delivering projects. For many, it’s not the end of their development but the start of a new chapter. It sets the highest standard for our profession and we believe that the future of our profession and the wider world depends on it, because when projects succeed, society benefits.

Join the community of proud project professionals making a difference to society by becoming a Chartered Project Professional (ChPP).
