PMP Preparation

Overview

The Project Management Professional (PMP)® is the most important industry-recognized certification for professional project managers.

Most of large-scale projects around the world are led by project managers with PMP certification. Unlike other certifications that focus on a particular geography or domain, the PMP® certification is truly global. As a PMP certified project manager, you can work in virtually any industry, with any methodology and in any location.

The PMP can also provide a significant advantage when it comes to salary and earning potential. Among survey respondents to PMI’s Earning Power Salary Survey, those with a PMP certification garner a higher salary (20% higher on average) than those without a PMP certification.*

The benefits for the organization can be clearly articulated. When more than one-third of their project managers are PMP-certified, organizations complete more of their projects on time, on budget and meeting original goals. (Pulse of the Profession® study, PMI, 2015.)

 

The PMP signifies that you speak and understand the global language of project management and connects you to a community of professionals, organizations and experts worldwide. Become a PMP and become a project hero.
