Gaining certification and upskilling is a rising trend in today’s workforce. Not only does it allow workers to keep up with the technical skills relevant to their job, but also improves their problem-solving skills and collaboration among peers.

According to McKinsey, “technologies could automate 45% of the activities people are paid to perform and that about 60% of all occupations could see 30% or more of their constituent activities automated”.

Hence, workers today need to be equipped with the right skills and trained with the right training body to ensure employability. One way to do so is through gaining an internationally-relevant accreditation. It also leads to increased productivity and salary increment. Here are 3 benefits to gaining project management certification.


  • You stand out from the competition

A Hays survey of over 2,000 people found 77% of employers are more likely to shortlist a candidate who has regularly upskilled. With that in mind, attending a course that allows you to gain certification is an advantage that you will have over the next candidate.


  • Increased body of knowledge

Through the certification program, you would have gone through the modules and learned then standardised set of project management best practices. This will allow you to be able to implement them to your own company projects and value add to your company.  With the increased body of knowledge and the set of tools acquired, you are able to improve the efficiency and productivity in all your projects.


  • Salary bump

Certified project managers earn more than those who are not certified. Surveys show that certified project managers are able to command a higher pay and increased compensation of at least 20% more.
