The Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification from the Project Management Institute (PMI) has grown rapidly to become a major project management qualification in North America and Internationally. Rapid growth has seen the number of PMP®s jump from the start of the qualification in the 1980s to approximately 10,000 in January 2000 and to a current total of over 690,000 active PMP®s in over 190 countries as of November 2015.
Extensive research has shown that slightly less than one-third of all projects are deemed “successful”. Not only does this represent a 67%+ failure rate, but it also indicates that a massive amount of time and money is wasted on “lost” causes.
Whether you are new to project management, want to learn project management tools which will help you be more proficient in your job, need to build your skills and knowledge as a project manager, or are a seasoned PM who would like to become a PMP®, GTCC has an offering to meet your goals.
