Professional in Project Management (PPM™)

The Project Management Professional (PPM™) is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers.

You can find PPMs leading projects in nearly every country and, unlike other certifications that focus on a particular geography or domain, the (PPM™) is truly global. As a PPM, you can work in virtually any industry, with any methodology, and in any location.

The PPM can also provide a significant advantage when it comes to salary and earning potential. Among survey respondents to RMCI’s Earning Power Salary Survey, those with a PPM certification garner a higher salary (25% higher on average) than those without a PPM certification.

Employers benefit as well. When more than one-third of their project managers are PPM-certified, organizations complete more of their projects on time, on budget and meeting original goals. 

The PPM signifies that you speak and understand the global language of project management and connect you to a community of professionals, organizations, and experts worldwide. Become a PPM and become a project hero.
