A formal project management certification is becoming increasingly valuable. The project management field is developing and expanding, and the number of Project Managers are increasing. This means that it is becoming more important to have an appropriate certification to prove that you are suitably qualified.
A certification proves that you have acquired certain skills and knowledge and that you have a certain level of experience in this field.
There are a number of project management certification courses out there that you can choose from. The Project Management Institute (PMI) was the first organisation to offer certification especially for Project Managers. Their certifications are still regarded as the international standard, and are therefore an excellent choice for anyone who wants to pursue a career in project management.
Project Management Certification options available from PMI:
- Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)
- Project Management Professional (PMP)
- Program Management Professional (PgMP)
- Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP)
- PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-RMP)
- PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP)
- OPM3 Professional Certification
The Project Management Institute (PMI) is not the only organisation that offers good project management certifications. You can also study project management at other colleges and universities.
When choosing a project management course, take a look at the course structure, duration, and the certification you will obtain once the course is completed. This will give you a better idea of what you are about to sign up for, and will also help you to choose the right course.
