Project managementYour next mission

Here at the Center for Project Innovation, we’ve crafted a project management certification program just for you — the military community. This includes active-duty military, veterans, National Guard, reserves, and their spouses.

Our program takes your already proven skills from military service and builds on them, helping you manage projects better or even prepare you for a new career in the civilian world.

Your military experience counts

We know that you’ve delivered projects – lots of them.

We also understand that the leadership and project skills you've gained in the military are valuable. When it comes to certification, you shouldn't have to start from the bottom.

So, we did something unique.

In partnership with the US Department of Defense and services in the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, and NATO, we became the first industry certification body in the world to map your military rank to project management experience.

Try our handy rank-to-certification calculator to see where you stand.
