The purpose of the Practitioner certification is to confirm whether you have achieved sufficient understanding of the theory and application of Earned Value Management to allow you to work successfully in an Earned Value Management environment.
As a successful Practitioner candidate you should, with suitable direction be able to start applying the method to a real project, but may not be sufficiently skilled to do this appropriately for all situations.

This will include a wide range of people working on Earned Value based projects including project managers, control account managers, project planners and project analysts.
