The certified Professional designation following your name demonstrates to current and potential employers that you possess a solid foundation of experience and education in project management. This can have a positive impact on bottom-line results as the designation symbolizes knowledge and accomplishment and is highly regarded by colleagues and employers.

PMIs Certification Program offers distinct certifications as follows:

  • Project Management Professional (PMP). Leads and directs project teams,
  • Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM). CAPM designation designed to demonstrate understanding of project management principles through education and testing,
  • PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP). Develops and maintains project schedule,
  • PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP). Assesses and identifies risks and mitigates threats and capitalizes opportunities,
  • Program Management Professional (PgMP). Achieves an organizational objective through defining and overseeing projects and resources. 

Becoming a Certified individual involves a number of steps:

  • Understand the eligibility requirements,
  • Prepare by attending a course at a professional training organization or a PMI Seminar or self-study (see PMI Bookstore or Certification Resource Materials for recommended reading),
  • Complete and submit an online certification application form,
  • Receive notification from PMI that you have met the qualifications and are approved to take the exam,
  • Set a date and time with a test center near you.
