CCGP - Certified Corporate Governance Professional (CCGP)

Coordinated through Professional Testing Inc. (PTI)

Corporate governance has never been more essential to a company’s success, reputation and to the stability of our business and economic system. The profile of corporate governance professionals has been heightened in recent years and roles are increasingly prominent and broad. Governance professionals meeting eligibility requirements via a combination of experience and education and who pass a certification test will become a CCGP - Certified Corporate Governance Professional (CCGP). This program has been developed by the Society for Corporate Governance with input from many corporate governance experts to meet rigorous national accreditation standards.

The CCGP defines the knowledge requirements of a governance professional. Individuals who earn the CCGP designation will have demonstrated their knowledge in the area of corporate governance. The CCGP test is offered through PTI, our testing partner, at Pearson VUE computer-based testing locations in the United States and U.S. Territories.
