Project management certification demonstrates that you have the skills and knowledge to manage projects from start to finish. This can give you an edge in the hiring process and increase your earning potential:

  • In Arizona, more than 40% of project manager job postings asked for project management certification in the past year.
  • According to a 2020 Project Management Institute survey, certified project managers nationwide report earning significantly more than those that are not certified.

For experienced project managers, the Project Management Professional (PMP®) is the "gold standard" of project management certifications. See upcoming PMP Exam Prep classes.
