What is PMP Certification?
The PMP certification will be my first topic. PMP stands for Project Management Professional. PMI Institute offers PMP certification to professionals who meet the PMP eligibility requirements and then pass the PMP certification examination.
Five volunteers working in project management founded PMI (Project Management Institute) in 1969 in Pennsylvania, USA. It took 14 years for them to organize their first symposium, which was held in 1983 in Atlanta, Georgia. The first symposium of PMI was attended by 83 professionals.
The PMI institute was established to help project managers around the globe learn a common language. This was possible by conducting a certification exam, and instructing candidates on a common ground in project management language.
The first PMP certification exam took place at PMI 84 in Philadelphia on October 6, 1984. 43 people passed the exam and became the first Project Management Professionals.
