The PMP® is changing

Why is PMI’s flagship certification changing? See how the PMP is positioned to remain the gold standard for project professionals around the world.

The Project Management Professional (PMP)® is a widely recognized certification, accepted and identified as a benchmark by project managers across the globe.

Regardless of your geographical scope of operation or your professional industry, PMP is a certification that is acknowledged worldwide. You can leverage your PMP certification in every industry, using any methodology and at any location. PMP is widely chosen for its global appeal.

The PMP certification not only gives you an advantage professionally, it also benefits your salary substantially. As per the PMI’s Earning Power Salary Survey, PMP certification holders reap higher salary—20 per cent higher than those without PMP certification.*

While employees harvest the benefits of a PMP certification, employers too have an edge over other competitors by hiring maximum PMP certified employees as project managers. PMP certified employees help in bringing down the time spent on projects and increase the efficiency to suffice budgets and meet goals. Don’t believe us? Refer to the Pulse of the Profession® study, PMI, 2015.

Holding a PMP certification implies that you possess expertise to manage projects globally. It gives you an edge over others due to your well connected network of professionals, experts and organizations from around the world.
