CompTIA, Project Management Institute (PMI) Join Forces to Deliver Comprehensive Cross-Industry Professional Training


Groups aim to enhance technical and project management skills in multiple industries

CompTIA, the nonprofit association for the information technology (IT) industry and workforce, and the Project Management Institute (PMI), the leading association for project management, announced today that the groups have entered into an alliance designed to benefit the collective memberships and alumni of both organizations. 

CompTIA and PMI will promote select cross-functional skill-building solutions from each organization to help professionals working in various industries develop comprehensive skillsets that include foundational knowledge in IT, data analytics, and project management.

Specifically, PMI will promote CompTIA’s Data+, Project+ and IT Fundamentals certifications and education. Additionally, CompTIA will introduce its IT professional audience to the Wicked Problem Solving® online course and toolkit which is designed to teach the tools and proven process needed for creative and collaborative problem-solving, as well as PMI® award-winning events.

“We believe this collaboration is just the beginning of a valuable partnership,” said Gordon Pelosse, Senior Vice President, Employer Engagement at CompTIA. “This partnership combines the comprehensive professional certification programs from two leading organizations and will bridge the talent gap caused by rapid digital transformation.”

As part of the alliance, CompTIA will host a booth at the PMI® Virtual Experience Series 2022: PMXPO on March 24 to introduce PMI audiences to their leading IT certifications. The free online event for PMI members and non-members, now celebrating its 15th anniversary, attracts project professionals from multiple industries looking to advance their skills and careers.
