Businesses are constantly evolving their use of technology, resulting in almost constant organizational change. Whenever an organization implements a new process, updates an existing process, deploys new technology, or fine-tunes services, its leaders must be mindful that even a simple change to a single process can start a domino effect, introducing issues in a range of other processes that must also be addressed. Thatโ€™s why itโ€™s vital to have a strong change management plan in place, so that the company can remain agile and flexible, without interruptions or downtime.ย 

But every change management plan, large or small, requires skilled professionals who understand the intricacies ofย change management. Change management is relevant to nearly every industry, but itโ€™s particularly important for businesses looking to improve processes, increase efficiency, and reduce errors and risk in IT, project management, and software and product development.

Looking to become an agent of change at your company? Here are 10 change management certifications you can earn to prove your skills.

AIM Change Management Certification

Accelerating Implementation Methodology (AIM)ย is a change management methodology that can be used for a wide variety of organizational efforts. It focuses on the human side of risk; rather than look at how technology or software fails us, it encourages leaders to strengthen processes that involve employees, given that human-error is one of theย biggest risks for failure. The certification is targeted at human resources, organizational development, IT, and business and clinical leaders, as well as project managers. Classes can be taken virtually or in person at sessions open to interested professionals, or organizations can opt to have employees accredited on-site with a session tailored to your businessโ€™ specific projects. The certification course will also count as professional development units (PDUs) for your ACMP certification.

Exam fee:ย $3,100 for the entire course

Change Management Institute Certification

The Change Management Institute (CMI) offers three levels of accreditation to prove your skills as a change manager: Foundation, Specialist, and Master. The content of each exam is based on the instituteโ€™s Change Manager Competency Model. At the foundation level, you will need to send in a written application that provides your capabilities and competencies, along with a reference from a manager who has โ€œdirectly observed your behavior in a change management role.โ€ Youโ€™ll also need to complete relevant change management education, either through a CMI-endorsed course or one that aligns with the Change Management Body of Knowledge (CMBoK). For the specialist level, youโ€™ll need 3-6 years of experience operating at the project or program level. You will also need to submit a written assessment that provides evidence of your skills, backed up with references from those who have observed your abilities, and youโ€™ll need to complete a virtual interview with an independent assessor. The master level accreditation is for โ€œhighly experienced, senior change practitioners to stand out from their peers as leaders in the profession,โ€ and is best suited for those with more than 7 yearsโ€™ experience.

Exam fee:ย Foundation: $525, discounted to $450 with CMI-endorsed training; Specialist: $675; Master: $1,050

Project Management Professional (PMP)

The Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute (PMI) is another great option for those looking to validate change management skills and expertise. Project and change management often go together โ€” the PMI states that a project is a โ€œtask with a defined end target,โ€ and that the role of project management is the managing of the change process that will help achieve the end goal, while keeping time and budget in mind. Change management and change process often require full-time management, and that can often fall to project managers. The PMP certification is a perfect fit for anyone who finds themselves straddling both roles โ€” project and change manager.

Exam fee:ย $405 for PMI members; $555 for nonmembers

Prosci Change Management Certification

Thisย certification focuses on Prosciโ€™s ADKAR modelย of change management, which is a proprietary methodology that the company says is useful for IT professionals.

The exam fee is steep, but it includes hotel accommodations, all meals, and any activities included in the program. The company also handles your hotel reservations, as it is a requirement to stay at the venue for the three-day workshop. Workshops take place in a variety of locations across the US, typically at picturesque resorts and vacation spots; you can also opt for a virtual experience instead.
