The PMP® Credential

For most business professionals, there comes a point in their career when they begin thinking about how to advance their career. Many look to the Project Management Institute’s Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential as a means to this end. The PMP® certification has become the bar against which to measure people.

In the eyes of employers, the PMP® credential is an internationally recognized standard representing project management skills, ability, and leadership. It vouches for that person’s capabilities, experience, and grasp of the project management knowledge base. Obtaining the PMP® credential demonstrates individuals who are committed to their profession—and to bettering themselves.

The PMP® was initiated to recognize an individual’s demonstrated understanding to lead and direct project teams and to deliver results. In addition to an individual’s educational background, eligibility requirements include significant project management experience, 35 hours of project management education, and passing a rigorous 200 question exam. The Project Management Institute recognizes two education-based paths to PMP® certification:
