Across industries, Project Management Professional (PMP®) is the leading certification for associate-level project managers. This 100% online course will teach you project management techniques and best practices based on the Project Management Institute's (PMI) A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®). By course completion, you will be fully prepared to sit for and pass the PMP certification exam.
While the scope of a “project” depends on the industry, projects are generally understood to be a series of activities that results in a specific outcome, product or achievement. Project managers are tasked with overseeing the people, processes, timeline and resources needed to complete a project.
Certification verifies that a project manager has a defined set of skills needed to launch and guide a project. Data from the Project Management Institute indicates that PMP® holders can earn on average $10,000 per year more than their non-certified counterparts.
The best project management certification depends on one’s current professional experience, so the best certification for entry-level project management professionals will differ from the best credential for senior project managers. However, the project management professional is widely considered the premiere credential for associate-level project management professionals.
Although nearly every industry needs project managers, technology, construction, manufacturing, professional services, energy and healthcare are especially strong sectors for project management careers.
