Top 5 Project Management Certifications around the world

let me tell you first that Project Management Certifications are not essential to get a Project management job unless they mentioned it in the Job description, but most of the time it's not required.

Why Are Project Management Certifications Important?

The average certified project manager has undergone various vigorous project development units, with each one being a training module of its own nature.

As a result of these certifications, the project manager is eventually capable of handling a wide variety of challenges and preset tasks to help increase the flow of the business industry.

The 5 Best Project Management Certifications of 2020:

  1.  Project Management Professional (PMP)

  2.  Agile Certified Practitioner (ACP) 

  3. Certified ScrumMaster (CSM)

  4.  CompTIA Project+

  5. Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)

1- Project Management Professional (PMP):

For a PMP Certification, you need to have a prior secondary degree spanning over four years. The PMI has also mandated a 4,500-hour work experience directly, or indirectly related to heading projects, being part of a Certified Project Manager’s Team, and at least a 35-hour basic level project management education.

Agile Certified Practitioner (ACP) Requirements:
ACP is scaled as an advance tier certification within the Agile Project Management Certifications lineup. To be able to take the ACP exam, you need to fulfill the following requirements:
  • High School Diploma, Associate Degree or Equivalent Experience

  • Over 2,000 Work Hours of Experience or Cumulative 2,000 Hour Work Experience.

  • Prior Experience in Agile Work Teams/ Companies

3- Certified ScrumMaster (CSM):

The CSM: Certified Scrum Master certification enables the “certified professional” to overlook a team of individuals who are responsible for working on the behest of the assigned product owner.

As of the most recent statistics, there are over 450,000 Certified Scrum Masters around the world. Most of these individuals started on Agile Project Management Certifications back in 2,000.

This certification is accredited with Scrum Alliance. They are a nonprofit organization who have been volunteering mostly in the IT industry for a number of years now.

4- CompTIA Project+:

CompTIA Project+ is yet another certification within the realm of Project Management Certifications. However, its requirements are slightly less stringent, and it mildly correlates to the computing industry.

It is safe to say that the CompTIA Project+ certification is scaled within the same league as that of Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM). CompTIA Project+ mostly has to deal with aggregating feedback from respondents, government representatives, and research institutes.

Later on, the qualified professional points the organization in the right direction to seek experts who’d be able to complete the project at hand. 

CompTIA Project+ and other associated IT Project Management Certifications are accredited with CompTIA Co. They are an institute like PMI and The Scrum Alliance. The only difference is that CompTIA Co. is targeting a specific mindset of the IT business industry.

5- Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM):

Since this is an entry-level certification, it does not have a lot of prerequisites. On the least, interested candidates with a high school diploma or an equivalent 1,500 hours of project management experience (without any previous certification) can apply.

If you do not qualify on the basis of the two aforementioned “requirements”, you can still opt-in if you have completed a minimum of 23 hours of cumulative project management education.
