The Project Management Professional (PMP) certification is the most sought after certification for project managers because it signifies an ability to speak and understand the language of project management. Employers and individuals alike benefit from the PMP certification. Individuals are better prepared to manage projects from start to finish and enhance their earning potential. In addition, employers benefit when their project manager is PMP certified because projects tend to be completed on time and on budget.
