PMI offers a comprehensive certification program for project practitioners of all education and skill levels. Currently consisting of five credentials, the program demonstrates both your commitment to the profession and your expertise through certifying education, experience and competency. Rigorously developed by project managers, PMI certifications ensure that you and your projects excel.
This is more important now than ever before: one-fifth of the world’s GDP, or $12 trillion, is spent on projects. And with many skilled practitioners leaving or scheduled to leave the workforce due to retirement — in the United States alone, 40% of the workforce by 2015 — there is a great demand for knowledgeable project managers. So much so that $4.5 trillion of that total is at risk, and the talent gap is widening.
When these opportunities arise, certification helps make sure that you’ll be ready. There are already more than 400,000 PMI credential holders around the world and in every industry, from healthcare, telecommunications and finance to IT and construction.
According to a 2007 PricewaterhouseCoopers survey, 80% of high-performing projects use a credentialed project manager. Make sure you’re one of them by earning a PMI certification.
