      Better Salary: Based on a survey carried out by PMI, PMP Certified project managers get an average salaries about 20% more than similar Project Managers who do not have the prestigious PMP credentials.
      Better Job Opportunities: In spite of the bad job markets in the recent past, the requirement for qualified Project Managers has been increasing exponentially.
