Course Benefits

PMP certification is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. Obtaining a PMP certification provides opportunities in many fields such as in finance, consulting, construction, Information Technology, biotech, telecommunications, manufacturing, healthcare and many other industries around the globe. The PMP also increases your earning potential. PMP certification holders earn 20 percent more than their non-certified peers according to Earning Power: Project Management Salary Survey, Ninth Edition. Employers benefit as well. 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.)

CAPM certification – Organizations with standardized practices attain better results and because the CAPM® recognizes your knowledge of the profession’s preeminent global standard, you’ll stand out to employers and be poised to move ahead.
