Your first step towards Project Management Certification

Project Management is one of the fastest growing professional disciplines in North America. More and more companies are requiring Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification, because it assures them of a certain level of skill and the adherence to a higher level of standards. In today's complex business environment, successful project managers need to build and manage high performance teams, champion organizational change, and lead diverse and multi-cultural teams.
