"Professional certification ensures that project managers are ready to meet the demands of projects across the globe."




 You may have seen or heard of other project management credentials, but what makes PMI certifications special?

PMI was the first organization to offer a credential specifically for project managers, and our certification program remains the global standard. Developed by practitioners for practitioners and representing our diverse global audience, PMI certifications give you a technical and financial edge.

There are currently eight credentials available, rigorously developed, globally accredited and easily transferable across borders and industries. These credentials represent a variety of discipline and experience across the career framework associated with the profession of project management.

Regardless of where you are in your career, PMI has a certification for you. Demonstrate your expertise and your commitment to the profession with a PMI certification. The decision to earn a project management certification is a important one, so make sure you choose one that best fits your current expertise and your future career plans. You can apply for any certification that matches your qualifications, and no certification serves as a prerequisite for another.
