With organization's increasing demands for professionalism in execution of projects, it is imperative that Project Managers understand and implement the best practices in project management. PMP® certification not only validates your skills and knowledge on the subject but also helps you improve performance by filling in your professional knowledge gaps in Project Management as well as efficiently lead your project team.

This is an intensive program that dramatically matures the project management and leadership skills of the participants while also preparing them to clear PMP® certification exam successfully. The PMP Training has proved as a very effective training program that focuses on imparting practical project management tools and techniques delivered by our experienced and PMP® certified instructors. Moreover, the training program is supplemented by interactive lectures, review sessions, and hands on exercises employing latest in accelerated learning techniques.

Project Management Institute (PMI)'s PMP Certification has emerged as the undisputed global certification in the field of project management since the first few individuals earned their PMP in 1984. Today, the recognition, prestige, and increased market value that follow any PMP certified professional across industries and around the world.

When your name is followed by the letters, "PMP", it indicates that you have performed a significant amount of project management that you have mastered and can apply a vast and very difficult knowledge base of PM, that you adhere to a code of professional conduct, and that you have completed formal project management training.

PMP is currently the most prestigious certification in the field of project management. Project Management Professional (PMP®) ranked No. 4 in “10 Hottest Certifications for 2010” By CertCities.com. One reason it carries such weightage is that it is rigorous and difficult to earn, and many project managers are unable to meet the high prerequisites or are discouraged by the effort it requires to apply, study for, and pass the certification exam. In fact, in 2005 it was estimated that less than 10% of project managers worldwide had attained PMP Certification.

The certification's difficulty has the dual effect of making it very hard to achieve and also offering significant career and professional rewards to those who do. Today, a growing number of companies are adopting PMP Certification as a way to distinguish true professional project managers from individuals who only have project management as their job title or who perform project management in their work. In fact, many corporations that once required job seekers to hold a Master’s degree in business now rely on the PMP to pre-qualify candidates.

You can see this advantage reflected when you look for a job change. Take a moment and search one of the numerous Internet job boards using the keyword PMP or PMI. On any given day, you will find a large number of jobs looking especially for the select few PMPs, and while the job market has generally softened during recent economic downturns, the number of PMP-specific jobs has steadily increased! Even as this certification grows, it is designed so that only the small number who can demonstrate all of the qualifications, experience, study, knowledge, and commitment will earn the PMP Certification. It’s comprehensive set of deliverables that sets it apart and makes it a unique program. The training information presented in an easy, simple and interactive fashion, the workshop workbook comes as a great learning aid. In addition, the participants are awarded certificate for 35 Contact Hours (PMI exam requirement) and post workshop assistance to help in their PMP® certification exam process.

Yet what makes the certification so difficult is also what makes it so valuable. Those project managers who achieve the goal, who earn the right to put the initials "PMP" in their title, have every right to be proud of their achievement. What they've done is remarkable.

And you can do it too... with dedicated guidance from Sisoft Technologies
