PMP® certification

a success story

The certification program for project management has had an impact well beyond initial expectations. In the decade since the Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification program began, over two thousand individuals have been certified. This article discusses the certification program's current status and reports on a 1993 survey distributed to PMPs. Demographically, the average PMP is 36 years old and probably works either in the engineering/construction, government, or consultancy areas. Most respondents reported that their certification has had a positive impact on their professional standing, job performance, and earnings. The benchmarks established by this survey will enable future monitoring and improvement of the certification program.
