There’s a reason project professionals in more than 200 countries have earned and maintained their PMP certification. It delivers real value in the form of professional credibility, deep knowledge and increased earning potential.
And those benefits have staying power. It’s not only a matter of higher potential salaries across the arc of a career. The PMP is about getting credit for what you already know and honing your skills. It’s about pushing yourself to excel—and then being recognized for excellence.
Watch a project professional and senior leaders explain why the PMP is so valuable.

I'm not saying that earning my PMP helped me gain recognition and new experiences overnight. But I needed that certification to get to the next stage in my career.
