PMP® - Project Management Professional - $111,209

The Project Management Institute’s (PMI) Project Management Professional (PMP) credential is recognized as the most important certification for project managers and is globally recognized and in heavy demand. The PMP credential demonstrates that you not only have the requisite, real-world experience, but that you also have the education to successfully lead and direct projects. The PMP credential should only be attempted by experienced project managers as the qualifications and testing for this certification are very rigorous. In addition, the PMI requires continued validation through required continuing education requirements. All of these factors ensure that the PMP credential is widely respected. The PMP experience and exam requirements focus on five process groups: initiating, planning, executing, controlling, and closing.

When the conversation amongst IT professionals turns to IT certifications, one of their first thoughts is of high salaries – dollar signs dancing in their heads. While some certifications do command a six-figure salary, this is not true for all. With the recent completion of their annual IT Skills and Salary report, Randy Muller, an instructor at Global Knowledge, thought it would be a great time to look at some of the more popular certifications – and their associated pay.

Note: The rankings below are based on certifications that received the minimum 200 responses required to derive a salary figure that is statically accurate. There are certifications that pay more that are not represented due to their exclusive nature. These include CCIE: Cisco Certified Internetworking Expert and VCDX: VMware Certified Design Expert, for example.
