The Resource Manager Certified Professional (RMCP)® program is a first-of-its-kind professional certification program for resource managers.
Execution of various services delivery operations is labor intensive. With cost, quality and predictable project performance becoming increasingly important to service operation success, RMCP® fills a void in the industry by addressing the need for more standardized approaches to the RM discipline.
