Getting a project management certification is a commitment. Which PMI certification is right for you? Make sure you choose the one that best fits your current expertise and your future plans. No one certificate is a prerequisite for another, and you can apply for any one that matches your qualifications. PMI’s main two certifications are as follows:
Project Management Professional (PMP)
This is the most globally-recognized and independently validated credential for professional project managers – perfect if you have demonstrated experience and competence in leading project teams. If you’re an experienced project manager looking to solidify your skills, stand out to employers and maximize your earning potential, the PMP is the right choice for you.
Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)
This is a good entry-level certification if you’re new to project management or still figuring out your career path. If you’re a less experienced project manager looking to demonstrate your commitment to project management, improve your ability to manage larger projects or earn additional responsibility, and stand out to potential employers, the CAPM is right for you.
