Description

Who is the PMI and what is the PMP® Certificate?

The Project Management Institute (PMI) offers a professional credential for Project Managers, which is known as the Project Management Professional, or PMP®. As the gold standard of project management, PMP® boasts over one million certified professionals globally.

Developed by the PMI, this heavyweight project management standard takes the fundamental framework offered by others and adds a process driven approach. This ensures that organisations and Project Managers both get consistent results, irrespective of formality or scale.

The PMBOK® Guide includes the 49 processes covering the full implementation of a project. According to the PMI these processes will increase the likely success rate of project implementation and earn the certification holder up to 25% higher earning potential.

The PMP® Certification can help your career in the following key areas:

  • It makes your CV stand out from your competitors
  • Gives you knowledge of a common global language
  • There is a large demand for certified Project Managers
  • As a member of the PMI you will have excellent networking opportunities

Where can a PMP® Certification take my career?

As a PMP® Certificate holder you are fully certified as a Project Manager. This means that you can apply for jobs as a Project Manager, often seeing a 25% salary increase over those who do not hold a PMP® Certificate. The average salary of a PMP® Certificate holder is £48k, but high earners can earn in excess of £80k per annum.

Unlike other Project Management qualifications, the PMP® Certification requires actual project management experience before you can take the PMP® examination.

Before being able to sit your exam, you will need to show 5 years work experience leading a project, or 3 years’ experience if you have a University degree. This clearly demonstrates the prestige of the certification. Once you have completed your training and examination you can add the letters PMP after your name!

Syllabus & Exam Details

Over the four-day exam preparation course, you will cover each of the 49 processes of the certification and discuss the breakdown of each of these into ITTOs; Inputs, Tools and Techniques and Outputs.

This is achieved across five project phases:

  • Initiating
  • Planning
  • Executing
  • Monitoring and Controlling

  • Integration management

  • Risk management
  • Procurement management

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
