In today’s industry environment, enterprises pay more and more attention to employees’ own qualifications. Such as education background, qualification certificate, relevant work experience, etc. Although the educational background and qualification certificate can not represent the working ability and problem-solving ability of employees, still they are used as an index to measure employees’ salary. PMP is the qualification certification of international project management professionals introduced by the Project Management Institute. Which is naturally recognized by enterprises and valued by management. Therefore, a frequently asked question is: how much does PMP increase salary?

After taking the PMP, the salary of the supervisor can be increased by about 1000 yuan per month. After obtaining a PMP certificate, the salary level of the project manager can reach 350,000 yuan annual salary. If you are a project manager or enterprise manager with 5-10 years of project management experience, you will be able to raise your salary to more than 400,000 after you get PMP.
As in the USA, since the PMP certification is invented by the Americans, the salary increment brought by PMP certification is slightly higher than as in China. If you are in the first-tier cities of the USA, take the current IT industry as an example: junior programmers can bring more than 160 US dollars per month salary increment after getting PMP certification. After taking the PMP, the salary of the supervisor can be increased by about 220 US dollars per month. After obtaining a PMP certificate, the salary level of the project manager can reach 70,000 US dollars annual salary. If you are a project manager or enterprise manager with 5-10 years of project management experience, you will be able to raise your salary to more than 80,000 US dollars after you get PMP.
