Project Management Professional (PMP) ® Certified Salaries

PMP Certified Salaries

Project management salaries vary from country to country, as with any global occupation, and the United States has some of the highest payed project managers in the industry as a whole. A certified Project Management Professional's salary, however, is more on average than a non-certified PM.. Let's take a look at some of the facts:

The median base PMP certification salary in the US for someone working in project management is $105,000 a year. Now, those who have been certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP) for five years make an average of $113,000 a year. PMPs who have been working for ten or more years have an average salary of $120,000 a year. That is nearly a 15% salary increase for certified PMPs. And in some cases, this percentage can be even higher depending on the company and the specific field of industry.*

On average, certified Project Management Professionals make a good deal more than non-certified project managers. Due to the level of experience and professionalism, PMPs are more highly valued, which certainly is apparent in each paycheck.

"The PMTraining exam service was instrumental in helping me prepare for the actual exam. The logical sequencing and structure of the practice tests, along with the post exam reporting, enabled me to identify areas of weakness and drill on those to increase my competency. I went into the actual exam feeling prepared and confident of passing on my first attempt. Thank you PMTraining; best $49 I spent in my preparation efforts."
