Careers

The Project Management Institute (PMI) has seen a five-fold growth in membership in the last 12 years. Eighty percent of this growth is driven by the increased use of project managers in the IT and technology sectors. The PMI projects that 1.2 million project managers will be added each year through 2016. Highly experienced project managers can earn a median salary of $96,000.

It is a career path that is growing in demand, and getting PMP or CAPM certification is a great way to accelerate your career goals. We have had participants in this series later tell us that certification played a key role in their finding a job or getting promoted." —Andy Kaufman, President, Institute for Leadership Excellence & Development Inc.
