Project Management Certification
PMI’s certification credentials are designed to make sure that all certification holders have demonstrated their competence through fair and valid measures. PMI® uses the most reliable testing measures for assessment of candidates.
Candidates are assessed using:
- Education and Experience—A combination of education and/or experience in project management is required.
- Testing Competence— Candidates are required to apply project management concepts and experience to potential on-the-job situations. Scenario-based questions are used to evaluate competence.
- Ongoing Professional Development—After you have achieved your PMI® certification, it must be maintained, requiring the accumulation of ongoing professional development and education (acquiring PDU) or, in the case of the CAPM® certification, re-certification.
The CAPM® credential offers recognition to those who are starting a career in project management as well as project team members who wish to demonstrate their project management knowledge. The CAPM® certification denotes that the individual has the knowledge in the principles and terminology of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), the Project Management Institute (PMI®) standard of project management which provides generally recognized good practices.
The PMP® credential offers recognition to experienced practitioners demonstrating competence and a solid foundation of project management skills. The PMP® recognizes the competence of an individual to perform in the role of a project manager and experience in leading and directing projects.
