The PMP® certification by the Project Management Institute (PMI®) is recognized globally as the gold standard in project management. It is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers. No matter where you are in the world, what industry you work in or methodology you apply, you can speak the language used over 750,000 certified project managers around the world by obtaining this certification. PMPs are now leading projects in nearly every country and, unlike other certifications that focus on a particular geography or domain, the PMP® is truly global.

As the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers, the PMP® will help you apply the generally recognized practices of project management acknowledged by the Project Management Institute (PMI®) to successfully manage projects.

In fact, the certifaction also provides a significant advantage when it comes to salary and earning potential. Among survey respondents to PMI's Earning Power Salary Survey, PMP certified professionals garner a higher salary (20% more on average) than those without certification*. Employers also benefit. When more than one-third of their project managers are PMP-certified, organizations complete more of their projects on time, on budget and meet goals (Pulse of the Profession® study, PMI, 2015)
