PMI certifications

Project Management Institute, abbreviated PMI, has its headquarters in the United states, but is active all over the world. Project manager certification, according to PMI is based on knowledge regarding PMI standards, processes and terminology, as described in PMBoK (Project Management Body of Knowledge).

PMI certifies project managers at two levels.

  • CAPM® - Certified Associate in Project Management
  • PMP® - Project Management Professional

At CAPM® level, the basic requirement is that you have experience of projects, (not necessarily as a project manager) have participated in project training and have passed your exam.

PMP® certification requires that you meet with the requirements regarding project management experience, training and that you have passed your PMP® exam. PMP® certification requires that you prepare and carry out a self-evaluation and reflect on your own experience and knowledge. Knowledge regarding PMBoK is required for both certifications.

In addition to project manager certification, there is also certification for e.g. portfolio and programme managers.

If you have decided that you would like to try for PMI certification, we recommend our PPS training courses, which will give you a good understanding of, and knowledge about project management. 

The relevant PPS training courses for the respective level:

  • PPS Step1 is relevant for certification at CAPM® and PMP® level
  • PPS Step 2 is relevant for certification at PMP® level
  • PPS Project management is relevant for certification at PMP® level

If you would like more support prior to certification, we can also recommend that you request the support of an experience mentor from Tieto PPS.
