Project Management Certification
Professionals across the board, in IT and other departments, are managing more projects than ever before, and having project management skills helps them to streamline processes and ensure they’re crossing all the T’s and dotting all the I’s. But for someone whose primary role is not project management, some of the better-known project management certifications may go above and beyond what is needed to do the job. If you work in IT, marketing, finance or another business role and manage small- to medium-sized projects, CompTIA Project+ may be a good way for you to prove to employers that you have the project management skills needed for your job.
Which Project Management Certification Is Right for Me?
It can be hard to decide which project management certification is right for you. The good news is, project management certifications seem to fall into two categories: those designed for full-time project managers and those designed for people in other jobs who also do project management.
PMP, and other project management certifications like Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) or PRINCE2 Practitioner, are methodology/framework-specific certifications intended for more advanced project management professionals who oversee large projects. If you are a full-time project manager, PMP might be right for you.
However, if your primary role is something else but you also manage projects, CompTIA Project+ can help you understand project management concepts without investing the time and money that major project management certifications require. It is ideal for professionals who manage smaller, less complex projects as part of their other job duties but still need foundational project management skills.
CompTIA Project+ is more versatile than other certifications because it covers essential project management concepts beyond the scope of just one methodology or framework. However, it does provide a high-level introduction to Agile as part of one of the objectives. Still, if you would like to focus on say Scrum specifically, you would want to take Scrum Alliance’s Certified Scrum Master certification.
