First of all, you should have spent at least 60 months leading projects
The PMP certification is one of the most important project management credentials. It is the most recognized and sought-after certification in the field and represents a high level of knowledge and experience.
In fact, PMI (Project Management Institute) has 98% member recognition worldwide and more than 200,000 members worldwide!
PMI defines project management as “The application of knowledge, skills, tools and techniques to project activities to meet specific requirements within quality standards for delivering projects on time, within budget.”

The current education requirement for the PMP credential is 35 contact hours (preferably from courses) within the last five years before applying for certification or recertification. The PMP exam is a difficult journey that will require you to prepare for it with both knowledge and experience in project management principles and practices as well as the ability to apply them in real life situations under time pressure.

PMP certification can be a great move for your career!
You’ve heard the buzz, and now you’re convinced: becoming a PMP is a great move for your career! The benefits of this certification are many, but here are just a few of the perks you can expect if you pass the test:
- A higher salary. Many organizations offer bonuses or raises to certified project managers; others require it as an entry-level requirement for new hires.
- A better job title and more responsibility. Project managers who have passed the exam often hold titles like “senior project manager,” “head of projects,” or even “VP of projects.” In other words, they get paid more because they do more work than everyone else in their department!
- Increased credibility with colleagues who don’t have any certifications themselves (or none at all). This will make them stand out from their peers when applying for promotions within their company as well as outside applicants looking for new positions elsewhere after being laid off from previous positions where no such credentials existed prior—often due to budget cuts caused by economic downturns or changes in leadership styles over time…
You’ve got to be careful in your approach and have a clear plan for how you are going to achieve your goals. This will ensure that you are able to follow through on what needs done and make sure everything gets completed on time so that everyone wins!
