In today’s marketplace, it is more important than ever to acquire sound CAPM certification when embarking on a career in project management. This is because we live in a changing world, where managers lead professional teams in every field imaginable, from construction to law, medicine and engineering. The project manager must be a natural leader. He or she must be a person of vision, able to spot problems and opportunities, and be ready to take responsibility for a situation. Above all, the project manager must be able to interact with the working team, and manage human situations together with the finer points of the ongoing project.
CAPM courses run both online and in colleges, and at various levels. Certain certifications qualify you to earn a basic salary and then work your way to seniority. More advanced certifications enable you to move into a top position, and earn possibly more than $100,000 per anum. Other certifications are skewed towards post-graduate professionals. Whichever you choose, ensure at the outset that your training company is accredited, and that your certification is recognized in the career market place.
