PMP Certification Training Course

Project Management Professional, PMP® Certification Course London

What is the PMP Credential?

PMP certification from the Project Management Institute®(PMI) is the most widely recognised global project management qualification. PMP certification demonstrates that you have the experience, education and competency to successfully lead and direct complex projects.

Around the world over 400,000 professional project managers hold the PMP. It is the perfect choice for those project managers who work, or aspire to work, in an international market. Research by the PMI has shown that project managers who hold the PMP credential earn significantly more that those without a qualification, with many earning up to £60,000 in the UK.

Why is the PMP so respected as a project management qualification?

The PMP not only evaluates your knowledge of project management but also your ability to take critical decisions in difficult situations and your overall experience. This is done by an evaluation of your experience managing specific projects as part of the exam application process. The PMI require different levels of experience depending on your qualifications (see the table below for details). Holders of the PMP must also continue to invest in ongoing professional development to maintain their credential. It is this rigor behind the PMP credential which gives it the credibility in the market place.

In summary in order to take the PMP exam you need to demonstrate:

  1. A track record of project management experience. This must be three years if you have a bachelor's degree and five years if you have no degree.
  2. Attendance at an approved 35 hour training course, such as this course offered by Parallel Project Training
