The Project Management Institute (PMI) offers a professional certification for project managers, known as the Project Management Professional (PMP)®.

PMI's professional certification examination development processes stand apart from other project management certification examination development practices. PMI aligns its process with certification industry best practices, such as those found in the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing. The PMP® certification is also accredited against the internationally recognized ISO 17024 standard.

PMP certification holders can be confident that their professional certification has been developed according to the best practices of test development and based upon input from the practitioners who establish those standards.

What is the PMP?

Career opportunity knocks as the need for project talent continues to grow. Research indicates that employers will need to fill nearly 2.2 million new project-oriented roles each year through 2027. This means skilled project managers will be in high demand.

Wherever you are in your career, the globally recognized Project Management Professional (PMP) certification tells employers, peers, and the world you know what you're doing in project management.

Even if "project manager" isn't part of your title, the PMP applies to anyone who helps bring a project to completion. Just like a CPA validates expertise for accountants, the PMP recognizes your ability to manage projects-and the hard work you've done so far.

Why the PMP

The PMP delivers value far into your career. CIO magazine ranked the PMP as the top project management certification because it proves you have the specific skills and experience employers seek. Certified PMPs report earning up to 25% more than non-certified project management professionals.
