Call to order - 844.220.4266

The Project Management Professional (PMP®)
Project Management Professionals have a firm understanding of the basic competencies involved in management and oversight, including areas such as effective time management, managing multiple projects simultaneously, scope and estimation of project undertaking and devising a detailed project plan alongside project risk and cost analysis.  The program includes training and exam preparation for students to become a Project Management Professional (PMP®) as designated by the Project Management Institute.  The PMP® is the most important industry-recognized certification for project managers.  Globally recognized and demanded, the PMP® demonstrates that individuals have the experience, education and competency to lead and direct people and helps individuals to stand out to employers and maximize their earning potential overall.   

The Project Management Professional Program
Guiding a team toward successful project completion can be extremely taxing but also incredibly gratifying for supervisors and managers. More than that, however, juggling multiple projects at once, managing multiple staff and dealing with the individual and collective personalities on the project can be incredibly overwhelming without a fundamental understanding of how to get the most out of your team and really get things done. Valuable programs like the Project Management Professional (PMP®) from the Project Management Institute (PMI) ensure students are best apt to guide their staff through this challenging process.

While the PMP® certification is incredibly valuable, pairing this credential with management and leadership development really ensures professional success in this area.  For the manager running the project or the project manager aspiring to run a team, the Project Management Professional program will ensure students are ready to take on these challenges.
