CompTIA Project+

CompTIA Project+ is the Computing Technology Industry Association’s certification program designed to demonstrate validated learning and skills in project management.

Project+ certification allows employers to easily recognize a qualified professional project manager to help manage and direct company initiatives. Hiring decisions on project manager jobs can potentially be decided on credentials like certification. CompTIA certification helps show employers that a potential employee is skilled, knowledgeable and capable of managing projects for their organization.

The CompTIA Project+ exam covers the project management life cycle and tests for the skills required to initiate, plan, execute, monitor and control and close a project. Project+ certification also covers "the business, interpersonal and technical project management skills" required for successful management of projects and business initiatives.

CompTIA Project+ can be used as a stepping stone to further Project Management Institute (PMI) certification. PMI Project Management Professional certification can help ensure a higher salary and better project management jobs.

CompTIA is a non-profit organization providing certification in a number of IT-related fields including CompTIA A+, CompTIA Network+ and CompTIA Security+ certification. The organization originated in 1982 as the Association of Better Computer Dealers (ABCD).
