What are PMI Certifications?

PMI offers a comprehensive certification program for project, program and portfolio management practitioners of all education and skill levels. Currently consisting of eight certifications, the program demonstrates both your commitment to the profession and your expertise through certifying education, experience and competency. Rigorously developed by practitioners for practitioners, PMI certifications help you and your projects excel.

As project management is one of the top skillsets demanded by organizations around the world, this is more important now than ever before. One-fifth of the world’s GDP, or more than $12 trillion, is spent on projects. And with many skilled practitioners leaving or scheduled to leave the workforce due to retirement — a trend the Society of Human Resources (SHRM) identifies as having a major strategic impact for 64% of organizations worldwide — there is a great demand for knowledgeable project managers.

When these opportunities arise, certification helps make sure that you’ll be ready. There are already more than 460,000 PMI credential holders around the world and in every industry, from healthcare, telecommunications and finance to IT and construction.

PMI's 2014 Pulse of the Profession® study finds that organizations with more than 35% PMP certified project managers have better project performance. Make sure you’re one of them by earning a PMI certification.
