Project Management Professional® (PMP) Certification Exam Preparation Course
Without a doubt, the Project Management Institute’s (PMI®) PMP credential has become the “gold standard” for project managers. PMP certification adds credibility to a resume and can result in higher expected salaries. Some recruiters divide resumes into two different piles based on those with and those without certification. Competition within the project management discipline is high and employers can afford to be selective. PMP certification in any industry is always helpful and in some disciplines, necessary.
