The Program Business Professional (PBP) designation is a new credential created by the Target Markets Program Administrators Association (TMPAA) and The Institutes Knowledge Group. The program aims to elevate the standards of excellence within the program business sector and align with the evolving landscape of program business. It will consist of four courses and exams, along with an ethics requirement, and qualify for Continuing Education (CE) credits.

Gene Abbey, Director of Insurance Education and Services at TMPAA, stated that the PBP designation offers professionals an opportunity to advance their careers in program business while earning credit towards additional Institutes Designations. He emphasized that this collaboration between TMPAA and The Institutes provides even greater value through the PBP designation compared to the current Certified Programs Leader (CPL) educational product.

This marks a significant milestone in the industry, emphasizing the commitment to providing industry professionals with a cutting-edge and comprehensive educational platform.
