Project Management Professional (PMP) ® Certification Value

Value of PMP Certification

A PMP certification reflects a the knowledge of a Project Manager who understands PMI's best practice approach to project management. As a result, this could mean being more attractive to potential employers, while being a member of the world's largest project management community. As such, the value of a PMP certification is quite high.

As more and more project managers, each year, realize the value of PMP certification, the value continues to grow. Let's take a look at the three main reasons PMP certification is so valuable:*

  • Automatic credibility boost - If you complete a PMP exam and become certified, it tells employers that you meet a high standard of project management efficiency, accuracy and knowledge. Also, since you already need a good amount of experience in the field prior to becoming certified, it shows that you have a solid professional background.
  • Higher pay - Most certified PMPs make considerably more money than non-certified project managers, in many cases between 20% and 25% higher than an average PM's salary.

The value of passing the PMP exam and becoming a certified Project Management Professional is high in both a personal and a business sense. You are more credible, desirable, and of course hireable with that professional achievement on your resume.

"The PMP study materials were excellent. The review cards, the study guide (especially the review questions), the Process Placemat, and the other materials equipped me to pass the PMP exam. I have found those materials to continue to benefit me beyond just passing the exam. "
Michael Taylor PMP

"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."
