  • PMP is a designation that achieve your potential

    PMI’s Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP®demonstrates that you have the experience, education and competency to lead and direct projects.

    This recognition is seen through increased marketability to employers and higher salary; according to the PMI Project Management Salary Survey–Eighth Edition, certification positively impacts project manager salaries.

    PMP’s Importance

    Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP credential demonstrates to employers, clients and
    colleagues that a project manager possesses project management knowledge, experience and skills to
    bring projects to successful completion.
    The PMP certification has achieved world-wide recognition in the past 2 or 3 years. More and more employers are seeking candidates with at least proven knowledge of PMI methodology and, usually, having (or in the process of obtaining) the PMP credential, itself. The clients of freelance consultants, particularly in the IT, Pharmaceutical, Government and Construction sectors are particularly looking for PMPs, often filtering out those who do not have the credential.

    Benefits of the PMP Program

    As the demand for skilled project managers is at a critically urgent level, practitioners who hold the PMP
    credential are well positioned to provide the professional skills necessary to lead project teams and
    achieve successful project results.
    The PMP recognizes the competence of an individual to perform in the role of a project manager,
    specifically experience in leading and directing projects. Year after year, the PMP credential has
    garnered global recognition and commanded a higher salary for credentialed individuals over noncredentialed
    individuals.

    • Analyzing stakeholders
    • Defining expectations

    About The PMP Exam

    The PMP examination is comprised of 200 multiple-choice questions. Of the 200 questions, 25 are considered pretest questions. Pretest questions do not affect the score and are used in examinations as an effective and legitimate way to test the validity of future examination questions. All questions are randomly placed throughout the examination. Computer-based testing (CBT) is the standard method of administration for PMI examinations. Paperbased testing (PBT) is available under limited circumstances.
