Why choose a PMI certification? 

You may have seen or heard of other project management credentials. What makes PMI certifications special?

PMI was the first organization to offer a credential specifically for project managers, and our certification program remains the global standard. Developed by practitioners for practitioners and representing our diverse global audience, PMI certifications give you a technical and financial edge.

The decision to earn a project management certification is a big one, so make sure you choose one that best fits your current expertise and your future career plans. You can apply for any certification that matches your qualifications, and no certification serves as a prerequisite for another.
