How Could Project Management Certification Change Your Life?
If you want to take on bigger and more challenging projects at work, advance in your career, increase your earning potential, and change your life, a Project Management Certification could help you achieve these worthy goals.
With more than 2.9 million members from 195 countries, the Project Management Institute helps improve organizational success and advance the careers of its members. Could certification through this world renowned institution change your life? At American National University, we believe it can!
Here are 7 ways:
Improve your skillset: PMI certification is proof that you have acquired a specific body of knowledge. You understand how to initiate, plan, execute, monitor, control and close projects. These improved skills will help you effectively oversee projects and do your job better, in whatever field you’re in.
Enhance project performance: When you apply your project management skills, you’ll be able to start, run, and close out projects more efficiently. That increase in productivity can translate to a savings of time and money for you and your employer.
Increase your influx of challenging projects: Once you’ve proven that you’re the go-to person for successful project completion, you may be given more responsibilities and more challenging projects. This will broaden your knowledge base even further.
Showcase your skills to others: Each time you successfully use your project management skills, you have an opportunity to show your colleagues and supervisors just what you’re capable of. You’ll earn their respect and confidence. Your peers will want to work with you and for you and your supervisors will come to depend upon you.
Jumpstart a new career: Get the training you need to find a career in project management with the American National University Business Administration-Management Bachelor’s Degree program--one of the only project-management focused bachelor's programs in the country. The program prepares you to sit for the CAPM® (Certified Associate in Project Management) certification exam as you learn to participate in six sigma teams, and manage new verticals and ventures within your company/organization.
According to the PMI Project Management Salary Survey, employees who have Project Management Professional certification earn more than their peers who do not. Could more earning potential change your life?
Increase your worth within an organization: Your credentials, knowledge, and experience will increase the value you bring to individual projects and the company you work for. You could become a rising star, opening yourself to promotions and raises.
