Over budget. Out of scope. Out of time.

All common symptoms of poorly managed projects. The good news: they're easily cured.

The treatment: project managers certified by the Project Management Institute (PMI), armed with best practices, a common language, and a vast global network. The University of Iowa is a Registered Education Provider with the Project Management Institute (PMI); our project management courses award PMI Professional Development Units (PDUs) for PMP®/CAPM® certification and Continuing Education Units (CEUS).

What is PMP certification?

Project Management Professional (PMP) is a globally recognized certification for project managers. Earning these three letters is hard work, but it pays dividends. PMP-certified project managers earn 20% more than ones who are not certified, according to Earning Power: Project Management Salary Survey, 9th edition. Beyond dollars, PMP certification makes a lot of sense. It catapults you into expert status, with added career mobility and connections with a community of project managers around the world. See PMI’s requirements for certification.

What is CAPM certification?

CAPM stands for Certified Associate in Project Management. The project experience and education requirements of a CAPM are less demanding than PMP. Like PMP, however, CAPM validates project management expertise on the job and desirability in the job market. See PMI website for details.
