The Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification is one of the most sought-after project management credentials in the business world today. As a globally recognized certification with more than 800,000 credential-holders, it validates professional experience and knowledge of project management, including understanding and application of the leading standard, the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) that is administered by the Project Management Institute (PMI). In addition to global recognition, the PMP® certification also provides an advantage when it comes to earning potential. According to PMI’s Project Management Salary Survey, respondents with a PMP® certification earn 23% more, on average, than those who don’t have the certification.
