"YOU ARE JUST ANOTHER PROJECT MANAGER TILL YOU ARE CERTIFIED" 

The PMP
Credential
If you enjoy
the prestige that comes   from being the best in your
field, then  you’ll appreciate the professional   
advantages derived from attaining the  PMP,
the profession’s most globally  recognized and respected
credential.   The PMP designation following your
name tells current and potential employers that you have
demonstrated a solid foundation of knowledge from which you can
competently practice project management.
To be eligible
for a PMP
Credential, you must first meet specific educational and project
management experience requirements and agree to adhere to a code
of professional conduct. The final step to becoming a PMP
is passing a rigorous multiple-choice examination designed to objectively assess and measure your ability to apply
project management knowledge in the following six domains:
initiating the project, planning the project, executing the
project, monitoring and controlling the project, closing the
project, and professional and social responsibility. This
computer-based examination is administered globally with
translation aids in 10 languages.
