Project Management Certifications

Examples of Project Management Certifications

These are just a few examples of industry standard certifications available in Project Management. The Project Management Institute (PMI) is an internationally recognized organization that offers certifications in a wide variety of specialties which can transfer from employer to employer. They are NOT KSU specific certificates.

CAPM® - Certified Associate in Project Management

  • Completing the CAPM® shows your demonstrated understanding of the fundamental knowledge, processes, and terminology as defined in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) that are needed for effective project management performance. This knowledge can be applied to on-the-job experiences that help develop growing levels of competence in the practice of project management.

PMP® - Project Management Professional

  • PMP® certification is the gold standard in project management. Recognized and demanded by organizations worldwide, the PMP® validates your competence to perform in the role of a project manager, leading and directing projects and teams.

PMI-ACP® - PMI Agile Certified Practitioner

  • Be formally recognized for your knowledge of agile principles and your skills with agile techniques. The PMI-ACP is evidence of your real-world, hands-on experience and skill as part of an agile team. It spans many approaches to agile such as Scrum, Kanban, Lean, extreme programming (XP), and test-driven development (TDD), not limiting a practitioner to one agile approach.
