A globally recognized certification, PMP (Project Management Professional) is one of the key requirements for Project Managers who aspire to move to the next level. Project Management professionals have made their mark in almost every country, in every industry and business vertical, spearheading significant projects around the globe and across domains.
While helping you learn and understand Project Management, PMP also helps you to connect with the right community of professionals, organizations and experts across the world. Moreover, with PMP comes great expertise. And with great expertise comes greater earnings.
Here are a few numbers to support this: ‘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, within budget and meeting original goals.’ (Pulse of the Profession study, PMI, 2015.)
Ideally, Project Managers who have basic know how and experience in every aspect of project delivery, leading and directing cross-functional teams should opt for a PMP certification.
