Why Seek PMP Certification?
The Project Management Professional (PMP)® is the most important industry-­-recognized certification for project managers. You can find PMPs leading projects in nearly every country and, unlike other certifications that focus on a particular geography or domain, the PMP® is
truly global. As a PMP, you can work in virtually any industry, with any methodology and in any location. The PMP also increases your earning potential. PMP certification holders earn 20 percent more than their non-­-certified peers according to Earning Power: Project Management Salary Survey, Ninth Edition. 

Employers benefit as well. When more than one-­-third of their project managers are PMP-­-certified, organizations complete more of their projects on time, on budget and meeting original goals. (Pulse of the Profession® study, PMI, 2015.)
