Certifications for PM for Additional Credentials

Most people think that holding a lot of certifications for a particular field guarantees job security and stable income. This might hold true, but what types of certifications do you aspire to get? If you are a project manager, holding a PMP certification is a big thing because project management is a science and art and as such, you need to be equipped with knowledge and learning tools to elevate your status.  Theory without practice is useless in project management. This is the reason why you need to have hours and days spent for experience before you can be qualified to get a PMP or CAPM certifications from PMI. 

To qualify for a PMP certification, you need to be a graduate of a 4-year college course with 35 hours of PM Education and less than two years of experience according to the guidelines set by the Project Management Book of Knowledge of PMI. The PRINCE2 certification is outsourced to certification giving bodies where the holder is elevated to the Foundation’s level and Practitioner’s level based by the BSI.  Other than PMP and PRINCE2, you can also get additional certifications such as:

  • Program Management Professional (PgMP) for managers handling different projects. Before getting this certificate, you need to have a PMP credential.
  • PMI Scheduling Professional (PMI-SP) and PMI Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP) is a subset credential from PMI.
  • Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) from PMI does not need an experience and an initial certification to get a PMP credential.
  • The Master’s Degree in Project Management for mastery of PMP and can be taken from some universities.
  • Master’s Certificate in Project Management (MCPM) degrees to obtain mastery in PMP from high learning institutions.  

Obtaining the above-mentioned certifications will add feather to your cap and this is a big achievement towards fulfilling a good project management work.
