Benefits of a Project Management Certification

Demand over the next 10 years for project managers is growing faster than demand for workers in other occupations. Organizations, however, face risks from this talent gap.* Project management is one of the most in-demand skill sets but less than 50% of project managers are certified.  Per O*NetIT Project Management related jobs are expected to grow an additional 22,400 by 2026.
