Next Ten Certifications That Actually Mean Something-2 Next

The Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute's (PMI) credential is universally recognized as the most important certification for project managers. Those with a PMP are in great demand and highly sought after by corporations. The Project Management Professional credential demonstrates that you have documented project management experience as well as professional education to successfully lead and direct projects. The PMP credential is for experienced project management professionals as the qualifications and testing for this certification are rigorous, and there are 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.

What gives meaning to a certification? Is it the certification vendor? Is it the subject? Or is it the perceived difficulty, mystique or aura? Or might it be something totally different? There are some certifications and/or vendors that are perceived to be more valuable - think of Cisco's CCIE, which has been perceived as meaning something (value) since its inception. Then there are other certifications that don't have this same perceived value - certifications that are seen as too easy or ones that might be seen as entry-level certifications. Global Knowledge instructor Randy Muller, MCT, MCTS, MCSE, CEH, has identified a list of certifications that do have perceived value and worth.
