Just in the USA alone, over 1 million project management related positions will be created each year for the next decade.

More than 370,000 practitioners worldwide hold this credential. Earning the PMP® demonstrates that you have the experience, education and competency to successfully lead and direct projects.

This recognition is seen through increased marketability to employers and higher salary; according to the PMI Salary Survey – Sixth Edition, a PMP® increases your salary up to 25% more than your non-credentialed colleagues and peers.

The PMP® recognizes demonstrated competence in leading and directing project teams. If you are an experienced professional looking to solidify your skills, stand out to employers and maximize your earning potential, the PMP® credential is the right choice for you.

Whether you are new to project management, changing careers, or already serving as a subject matter expert on project teams, the CAPM® can get your career on the right path or take it to the next level. Designed for those with less project experience, the CAPM® demonstrates your understanding of the fundamental knowledge, terminology and processes of effective project management.

Senior executives who do not manage projects but they will be held accountable for projects within their organization. Therefore, they need to understand earned value management (EVM) and what questions they should be asking the project management professionals in their organization to make sure all projects with the organization are delivered in a quality way and on time and within budget.

The CAPM® certification is also right for you, if you are looking to make a career change or you are a less experienced professional looking to demonstrate your commitment to project management, improve your ability to manage larger projects and earn additional responsibility, and stand out to potential employers.
