The Project Management Professional Certification in the UAE
The Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification is a definite plus factor in the United Arab Emirates, since it is pursuant to the goal of maintaining the UAE’s high standardization level. The PMP examination is conducted in order to evaluate the levels of competence of individuals who will handle projects across the UAE. Those who pass the PMP examination and are issued the certification will form part of the highly-valued members of the UAE work force. PMP certified professionals often get the best projects to handle, whether in Dubai or elsewhere in the UAE.
Passing the said examination will entitle an individual to a certification and will enable him or her to become a certified professional, empowered to compete both in the corporate and the field arenas and prepared to demonstrate the best practices in project management. Being certified is always synonymous to proving the words “high standard”, “highly competent” or “best prepared” in one’s ability to handle projects competitively in a highly technical workplace.
To equip individuals for getting certified, UAE-Dubai offers professional training to enhance their knowledge so as to increase their chances of passing the PMP exam. The training course is especially suited for busy professionals in Dubai like senior managers, project managers, project coordinators, project leaders, business analysts, engineers, managers, project team members, and entrepreneurs. There are evening classes and Saturday classes available subject to their choice depending on their spare time and pace.
What is offered in the training is the full Project Management Professional (PMP) course designed to prepare every participant for the new PMBOK4 based exam by reviewing the five processes groups, and nine knowledge areas. The review will cover all details, including value calculations and solving critical paths, as well as the key concepts and techniques that can be applied in the PMP examination. Participants will be provided review materials and workshop activities that include exercises and sample questions. The training courses will surely build up confidence and raise the chances of passing the exam at first attempt. Those who conduct the training are PMP certified and have a USA graduate level education.
In general, going through the PMP training means getting a brief overview of the world of project management which covers basic project management concepts, including terminologies, the project management life cycle, types of organizations and identification of project stakeholders. It covers the nine knowledge areas in enough details to be able to use them at their work place, including integration, scope, time, cost, and others. It includes handling proper risk management like risk planning, identification, quantification, response planning, and monitoring and controlling risks. It also refreshes knowledge and increases chances of passing the PMP Certificate examination fully as one gets equipped with the knowledge and skills to effectively navigate the program management discipline.
PMP certification is one of the most prestigious in project management which is offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI). This certification is available for both the experienced project managers well as the freshers who want to make their career in project management. The experienced project managers should have at least three years practical experience in order to obtain this certification, and to those candidates who do not have any experience in project management, the maximum duration to obtain this certification is within three years with the complete process of PMP training at 35 contact hours which will include highly skilled project management guidelines, tools and techniques and methodologies – a comprehensive knowledge of project management.
The PMP certification certainly adds much to an individual's credentials that would bring him to the best projects and positions, and give him a chance to show off his skills and abilities for growth. The more professional degrees and skilled certifications one has in Dubai, the better enhances one has for a highly-paid career startup or for professional advancement in Dubai, Abu Dhabi or in the other emirates. The advantages and benefits of being a certified PMP include the following: increased earnings, enhanced project management skills, visibility and great career opportunities.

PMP Certification is, indeed, a definite plus.
Experience in Project Management is crucial, but so are certifications.
I've been in Project management for 3 years now. My manager sent me to a PMP course last month. Very helpful course. Now I'm trying to convince him to let me go for PRINCE2
What do you think, which one is more relevant? PRINCE2 or PMP?
