Remember that PMP Certification is appropriate for people whose job title is project manager or PMO leader. www.PMI.org posted who should apply for the PMP Certification:  an experienced project manager who meets the following requirements: 

  • Perform their duties under general supervision and are responsible for all aspects of the project for the life of the project 

  • Lead and direct cross-functional teams to deliver projects within the constraints of schedule, budget and resources 

  • Demonstrate sufficient knowledge and experience to appropriately apply a methodology to projects that have reasonably well-defined project requirements and deliverables. 

Check out www.PMI.org for more PMP Exam information, see Application Tips. Complete application requirements and role definition can be found in the PMP Handbook

PMP Certification is popular and requires 35 hours of project management training before you can sit for the PMP Exam. 

PMP certification doesn't make sense for every person who leads a project. It is best for people who have committed to a career in project management. And even organizations that are strongly project-driven have opted not to value the PMP certification, choosing instead to promote project management training that builds skills and is aligned with their own processes. 

The PMO should be an active participant in this ongoing discussion about the value and proper place the PMP certification holds in an organization. This video from www.pmi.org adds a personal perspective.
