Benefits

As a PMP®, you can work in virtually any industry, with any methodology and in any location. Additionally, the PMP credential:

  • Provides a significant advantage when it comes to salary and earning potential. Among survey respondents to PMI’s Earning Power Salary Survey, those with a PMP certification garner a higher salary (20% higher on average) than those without a PMP certification.*
  • Prepares you for expanded job responsibilities and has the potential to lead to new career opportunities and advancement.
  • Signifies that you speak and understand the global language of project management.
  • Connects you to an international community of professionals, organizations, and experts.
  • Recognizes your knowledge, skills, and abilities.

Employers benefit as well. When more than one-third of their project managers are PMP-certified, organizations complete more of their projects on time, on budget and meeting original goals. (Pulse of the Profession® study, PMI, 2015.)
